Historically, Tibro is renowned for its long tradition of furniture manufacturing, the timber for which comes from the lush forests of the surrounding Skaraborg. In 2018, JOOL Invest acquired a majority share of Tibro Såg AB. As part of the JOOL group, the sawmill has since worked in close synergy with ESS-ENN Timber.
Tibro Såg produces first class block timber with 11 to 22 cm on the top and lumber lengths of 2.55 and 3.0 metres. The plant has a modern sawmill with a capacity of 750 logs per hour and consists of a straight production line with a plane, profiling unit and split saw.
To meet the targets for KD 56°C/30 min labelling, the actual drying is done in chamber dryers with ventilation drying. The end product will be construction timber and packaging timber, but also material for our glued laminate production, where the requirement is for a high share of tight knots.
All waste material is used and made into new briquettes for heating plants and boilers.
