Since the autumn of 2017 Bjernared is buying timber from Värmland to complement the production. The timber from Värmland is considered to be of a higher quality compared to what we source in close proximity to our mill.
As Managing Director, the Board of Directors has appointed Oskar Joelsson. Oskar has worked with us since April 2019 as Head of Sales and is son to one of our owners, Torbjörn Joelsson.
Starting October 1st, Bjernareds Sågverk AB, will take over sales to UK customers instead of working through Bosstimber. The plan was for this partnership to continue, but since the market and Bosstimber has grown, Bosstimber has proposed to end this specific partnership.
The construction of the new measurement station and log sorting facility is now underway! Our existing facility has been outgrown to keep up with our needed capacity for log sorting and measuring. The old facility is also taking up valuable space that we want to use for more storage space.
For the first time in the company’s 74-year-old history, Bjernared has received the highest credit rating (AAA) from Bisnode. Only 3% of Swedish companies have reached this high credit rating and we are extremely happy and proud to receive this rating.
To streamline our administration and to further ensure timely payments to our suppliers, Bjernared has today gone live with a digital administration and workflow of its supplier invoices.
