Byko-Lat has acquired from Bergs Timber the planing line from the Myresjö Sawmill that stopped production this summer.
The line is being moved to Valmiera in Latvia and is expected to start production end of Q2 2018. The line will be 5th planing line in Valmiera and will increase the planing capacity to 200 000 m3 annually.
The reason for the new production line is to reduce delivery lead-times and increase capacity to our customers, says Valts Kurpnieks, Managing Director of Byko-Lat.
Byko-Lat has at its Valmiera site a timber planing & further processing factory including impregnation, a window and door factory and a prefabricated house factory. Byko-Lat’s garden furniture production is located at the Cesis factory. The production is sold to more than 25 countries worldwide.
Byko-Lat is part of Norvik Timber Industries.
