Koskisen story

Established in Finland in 1909, Koskisen is a forerunner in the sawn timber and panel industry. Roughly 900 Koskisen employees make an annual turnover of close to EUR 311 million at the family-owned company.

Our production facilities in Kärkölä, southern Finland, include a sawmill, planing mill, plywood mill and the only chipboard mill in Finland. Our thin veneer plywood unit is located in Hirvensalmi, southeast Finland. We also have Kore unit, which is part of the Panel Industry, located in Poland.

Sights set on a carbon-neutral world

One of our key tasks is to partner with forest owners to ensure that forests are utilised sustainably. We process Finnish birch, spruce and pine into products for construction, transport vehicles, furniture, joinery products and packaging that will serve as carbon sinks for decades to come. Almost 100% of our wood raw material is converted into products, with close to zero waste.
