Quality has a name. Koskisen.
Koskisen is a Finnish wood product company that is more than one hundred years old. Koskisen processes wood into sawn timber, plywood, chipboard and more. Koskisen’s business is based on forests, which is why taking care of nature and the environment is at the core of Koskisen’s business and strategy.
Koskisen is a responsible, reliable and longterm partner that offers products made of dense wood from managed Finnish forests to its quality-oriented customers worldwide. Koskisen’s agility, experienced sales organisation, as well as willingness and ability to creatively solve the needs of its customers, make it stand out from many of its competitors.
Koskisen’s customers include the logistics, construction, automotive, stamping, furniture, interior decoration, packaging and chemical forest industries. A smaller part of Koskisen’s products is also sold to wholesalers and distributors.
Koskisen has two business segments
The Sawn Timber business segment produces sawn timber and processed products.
The Panel Industry business segment produces plywood, thin plywood, veneer, chipboard and interior solutions for light duty utility vehicles under the Kore brand.
Koskisen Wood Procurement purchase wood mainly from private forest owners in Finland and offer versatile forest management services to these forest owners. Koskisen complies with the requirements of the PEFC chain of custody certificate and the Forest Stewardship Council A.C. (“FSC”) chain of custody certificate in all wood procurement. Koskisen traces the origin of the timber it procures and uses a timber chain of custody system to ensure that all timber is sourced legally and ethically from reliable sources.
First-class sawn timber
The Sawn Timber Industry sells significant amounts of sawn and further processed timber to markets outside of Finland, particularly to Japan.
Koskisen produces both standard sawn timber and dimensioned and strength graded sawn timber from spruce and pine. Koskisen further processes approximately 40 per cent of the sawn timber that it produces, mainly by planing, and to a smaller extent, painting.
In addition to traditional construction timber and further processed timber, we manufacture different customised cut-to-size products for the needs of the construction and packaging industries.
Koskisen manufactures customised birch plywood panels and flooring products for construction, light and heavy-duty commercial vehicles (such as vehicle and trailer floors), packaging, interior design, furniture and the carpentry industry.
Koskisen produces a wide range of chipboard products from sawdust and wood chips generated as by-products in Koskisen’s saw mills and birch plywood production. The chipboard products are manufactured at Koskisen’s production plant in Järvelä, which is the only chipboard factory in Finland.
Unique thin plywood and veneers
Koskisen manufactures durable and flexible thin plywood and birch veneer, which are suitable for laser cutting, moulding, design products, interior elements, lamps, technical panels and CNC machining. The largest end-user segments of Koskisen’s thin plywood and veneer are the furniture and carpentry industry.
Kore – Optimised van interior solutions
Koskisen manufactures interior solutions for light utility vehicles from Finnish plywood and other materials under the Kore brand.
