About us

Ljungträ AB is a privately-owned sawmill with production plant located in Munktorp village, outside Köping in Västmanland.

The mill is situated in a region well recognized for its high-quality timber of spruce.

We are dedicated to produce sawn timber of spruce in 3-meter lengths. The log source and production line are designed to offer high quality timber products to the different markets.

The company consist of 17 full-time employees, producing about 43,000m³ of sawn timber and consume approximately 120,000 m³solid of small dimension logs on annual basis.

The products are mainly sold to further processing wood industries, exporting about 75% of the volume to countries all over the world such as: Germany, Japan, China and Egypt.

The production

Every week is about 60 lorries with small dimension spruce logs delivered from our log sourcing partners. The volume and quality is measured and evaluated on each lorry basis by VMF / Qbera, an independent timber measuring organisation. Logs are debarked and sorted in selected timber classes, based on diameter, to suit the final products and stored shortly before processing on batch basis through the sawmill.

The Sawmill is of Söderhamn-Eriksson brand, built 1984, consisting of two chipper canters and one rotary gang saw of Vislanda brand. Towards the end of the line there is a stick stacker of Almab brand installed since 2001. Afterwards is the timber artificially dried in four chamber kilns, in the size of 160-190m³ per each chamber. The drying process is controlled by a system supplied by Valutec. Required hot water for the dryers is provided from a solid fuel fire boiler that belongs to the sawmill.

The timber products are sorted and marked in decided qualities, before bundling at our sorting mill, consisting of two manual sorting places and four separate stackers.
