“Our choice of partner was influenced by SRV's expertise in industrial project construction and the contract model based on close cooperation,” says Jaakko Anttila, EVP, Metsä Wood.

Metsä Wood decided to build a new Kerto LVL mill in June, and preparatory work at the mill site has progressed as planned. The employment impact of the construction phase of the project is estimated to be around 1,000 person-years. When completed, the mill will employ around 150 people directly and 200 people in its direct value chain. The mill is expected to start production in the second half of 2026. The mill will have an annual production capacity of about 160 000 cubic metres, which represents a 50 per cent increase in the company’s total Kerto LVL capacity.

“The Äänekoski Kerto LVL mill will be carried out using a modern cooperative model, which is clearly becoming more common in industrial projects due to its advantages. During the development phase, we planned and coordinated the project in good and close cooperation with the client, and are now ready to launch the implementation phase,” says SVP Hannu Lokka, responsible for SRV’s regional units.
