The equipment will be delivered to Pollmeier’s future LVL mill at Creuzburg, in central Germany. The order comprises a peeling line, a drying line and an LVL lay-up line.

Pollmeier is the biggest producer of beech sawn timber in Europe. With the new investment the company will broaden its supply to veneer based products. Beech will also be the raw material at the new LVL mill, the mill being the first LVL mill in Central Europe.

The machinery will be manufactured at Raute’s Nastola, Shanghai and Kajaani plants, and delivered in the spring 2013.
