01.03.2018 − 

After the slightly regressive development in 2015 and 2016, the Finnish plywood industry succeeded in boosting its output at a greater rate again last year. Figures published by the Finnish Forest Industries Federation (FFIF) in mid-February show that the production volume rose by 9.0% to 1.240m m³ compared to the preceding year.

The Finnish plywood industry had last achieved an output of 1.2m m³ in 2008. The output had even been in excess of 1.4m m³ in each of the years 2006 and 2007. Production had then slumped to 800,000 m³ by 2009; a reduction of 43.3% within the space of two years.
