For a more uniform profile of the group, we have changed the name of the parent company to Rundvirke Industrier AB.
Our first company was founded over 100 years ago. That’s about the time it takes for a pine tree to grow to maturity for harvesting here in the north. Rundvirke Industrier and its subsidiary companies are close to the forests they work in. Our solid professional knowledge, our feeling for forest raw materials and our ability to improve our products in step with conservation, have made us Sweden’s largest specialist timber group.
There was a time when railway sleepers did not last longer than ten years, and the electricity grid could not be expanded because all effort went into replacing rotting power line poles. We solved the problem by impregnating our poles and posts. Today, we are characterised by wood preservation and high quality forest raw materials. Most of the trees that we harvest are checked and selected in the forest by our inspectors. For us this is essential in order to obtain the high quality timber we need for our special production of telephone and power line poles, joinery components, sleepers and posts.
