The force of the forest

50,000 Swedish forest owners trust in Södra. The corporate group markets the wood of its members across the entire value chain. A perfectly organized operation that only invests in the best production technology. 

Long-term growth is the number one objective at Södra. The existing manufacturing technology is, therefore, constantly reviewed and must meet the highest standards with regards to quality and future viability. Even for the sawmill, where scanner technology has long been used, the company keeps a close eye on market developments. Project manager Roger Johansson was familiar with WEINIG's CombiScan+ top model from a previous role with another company. The scanner was used at the company to their complete satisfaction. That was the catalyst for the replacement investment. Flexibility was a key point in Södra's target specification document. Which is not surprising. After all, Södra currently processes 17 different profiles/widths, previously involving quite a complex adjustment process. With the optimized profile software of the new CombiScan+ S 600, however, new profiles can be set up and produced in no time. Södra particularly appreciates the improved performance and higher yield through optimized value creation Simple operation and intuitive handling are the icing on the cake. Luxscan Sales Director Jean-Philippe Hildebrand appreciates the endorsement: "Our scanners offer the customer genuine added value and are perfectly adaptable to individual requirements. Södra recognized this and took full advantage."
