Jartek responds to the future challenges of further processing in Russia

28 November 2011

One of the major suppliers of sawmills in Russia, Finnish Jartek, is presenting company's new further processing concept of sawn timber at the WOODEX exhibition, held in Moscow 29.11.-2.12.2011. Jartek strongly believes in the significant increase of first degree further processing in the Russian market. The main target group for the new concept will be existing sawmill customers, as well as other forward thinking companies, which process more than just sawn timber production.
Jartek’s well-known brand as well as succeeded large deliveries will contribute to the launch of the new market area.

A new concept – high speed planing mills
A significant part of Jartek’s further processing concept is high speed planing mills. Jartek has designed together with its partners planing complexes, which are planing in a range of 150-350 m/min. These production lines are suitable for capacity from 50 000 m3.
In addition, Jartek will heavily invest in the other primary processing sectors, such as the house building industry and the gluelam beam industry, together with its strong partners.
Investments in the Russian market will continue
Generally, experts in Jartek firmly believe the Russian timber industry to grow. "Investments will be strong in all our business areas. We are developing our operation comprehensively to meet the future challenges. In addition, we are continuously developing our local visibility and looking for new experts in Russia to all areas of expertise. ZAO Jartek Rus, subsidiary located in St. Petersburg, currently employs 8 professionals. In the near future, we are planning to expand our sub-network as well as begin our own production in Russia", says Jukka Nousjoki, the general director of Jartek Rus.
