Holmen Wood Products has announced the opening of a new factory in New Holland in the Humber region of the UK.
The move reflects the continued expansion of the wood products sector within Holmen and the 2,500m2 of covered storage will facilitate faster and more efficient deliveries to its buyers across the UK. The terminal will store millwork products including redwood, whitewood and glulam.
The announcement marks the latest step in Holmen’s program to improve its service in the UK.
“We are delighted to bring this new service operation to the UK market to meet the changing needs of our customer base,” said Nathan MacWard, Controller of Offshore Stock Operations. “Providing field stock gives businesses of all sizes greater access to Holmen products and speeds up deliveries while minimizing the risk of delays.”
Holmen produces sawn and finished timber products for joinery, building and construction merchants. Following the acquisition of Martinsons in 2020, Holmen is now also able to offer engineered solutions for climate-smart, large-scale timber construction, both for CLT and glulam products.
