Metsä Wood opens in the UK second terminal

28.10.2019 − 

The business unit "Metsä Wood" within the Finnish Metsä Group opens a new lumber terminal in Ipswich/Suffolk, southeast England, on 1 November. The storage and handling terminal will hold a comprehensive range of joinery products. Metsä Wood currently operates a lumber terminal in Seaham/Durham in the north-east of England. Both locations are to handle the further increase in deliveries, which have already increased continuously over the past five years.

In future, orders from the Ipswich and Seaham terminals will be delivered nationwide within 48 hours. In addition, the two locations will support direct deliveries from the sawmills in Finland and Russia to customers in the UK and Ireland. Marketing is being carried out by Metsä Wood. In organisational terms, the sawmills within the Metsä Group have been assigned to the "Metsä Fibre" division since 1 November 2016.
