The business will be part of the Södra Building Systems business segment, with Kenny Holm as new Marketing Manager for Denmark.

“We are seeing a large interest in Södra’s CLT outside Sweden, and Denmark is the first step in our international establishment. They have come a long way in sustainable construction and are phasing out traditional materials, mainly in favour of CLT. Moreover, Södra’s geographic location in south-west Sweden is ideal for this market.”

In addition to structural elements in CLT and glulam, Södra will now be able to offer engineered timbers for projects. All production will be carried out at Södra’s combined facilities in Varberg Municipality and other work will remain based in Sweden.

“I’ve been working in the construction industry for many years, but developments in Denmark have moved rapidly over the past few years,” said Mr Holm.

“While demand for CLT construction is huge, there is also a need for knowledge development. Södra is meeting this need with a complete offering for its customers.

“We have good dialogue with a range of stakeholders at various levels and already see a number of promising projects ahead.”
