The orders consist of machine lines to be delivered for a plywood mill to be set up by Metsä Wood in Estonia and services related to the installation and commissioning of the lines.

The machine lines will be delivered and the installation and commissioning of the plywood mill will start at the beginning of 2018.

The cooperation between Raute and Metsä Wood has continued for a long period and the production processes in Metsä Wood’s plywood and LVL mills have mostly been implemented by machinery and equipment delivered by Raute.

The order now received by Raute is related to the investment programme resolved and disclosed by Metsä Group on June 8, 2016. As a part of the investment programme Raute has previously received orders worth altogether some €25m for an LVL production line and machinery and equipment for a birch veneer production line to Finland.
