Finnish Sawmills Association

The Finnish Sawmills Association promotes the interests of the independent sawmill industry. Its membership consists of about 30 companies from all over Finland. Practically all of them are family businesses with a human face.

The Finnish Sawmills Association promotes the business activity of its members by looking after their interests. The Association aims to make the Finnish independent sawmill industry known as one of the most important branches of the national economy and as a profitable and responsible branch based on entrepreneurship and sustainability; and to make sawmills known internationally as reliable and forward-looking partners. The Association monitors changes in the business environment, as well as anticipating and informing about them.
