Södra again cuts softwood-lumber production
The Swedish company Södra has reacted to the weak sales situation on the softwood-lumber markets with production cutbacks totalling roughly 50,000-60,000 m³ at its plants in Ramkvilla, Torsås and Långasjö by the end of August. In a first step, the roughly four-week shutdowns scheduled for the holiday period in Ramkvilla and Torsås will be extended by another two months. Both plants will stop sawing on 4 June and only resume on 27 August. In addition, production in the Långasjö plant will be converted during the same period from three-shift to single-shift operations.
