Jarl Timber will reduce its production from 2 shifts to 1 shift as of 1st of August. The reduced production leads to about half of its 60 employees becoming redundant.

-During the past 9-11 months the raw material prices have not reflected the sawn & planed timber prices and we are forced to adjust the production to sustainable raw material availability in the region, says Kjell Gabrielsson, Managing Director at Jarl Timber.

Jarl Timber produces currently annually about 130 000 m3 of spruce and pine timber which are sold to Europe & North Africa.

- We have looked at all possible alternatives but unfortunately the cut in production and redundancies are inevitable, says Sampsa Auvinen, CEO of Norvik Timber Industries.

Jarl Timber is part of Norvik Timber Industries.
