Raute selling LVL line to client in north-east Asia

23.02.2018 − 

Finnish Raute landed an order for an LVL line from a company in north-east Asia during January. No further details were revealed about the client. The contract was valued at about €20m and principally includes the veneer lay-up line and the LVL press. These lines will be manufactured at Raute’s sites in Nastola and Shanghai.

A veneer sorting station was included in the order, which will be installed in the vicinity of a veneer dryer provided by an Asian manufacturer. Veneer sorting technology will be provided by Metriguard, which is part of Raute’s Mecano division in Kajaani, Finland and was acquired at the end of 2017. The new LVL line is to process softwood, Raute said.
