History and Background

Willwood, or Aktiebolaget Willwood, was founded as a strong niche player active in the Forest industry in the Western part of Sweden in 1976. The founders name was Olof Willhelmsson, where also the name Will-wood had its original roots from.

Main directions within the forest industry have varied over the past decades, involving round wood, wooden piles for construction an solutions for foundation works as well as sawn wood and finally planing.

Lately, the company started to focus more on deeper reprocessing, especially so through the recent acquisition of the historical, and once upon a time the largest Swedish producer of planed products in Kallinge, Blekinge on Sweden’s East coast.

Hall Systems and “Waco Maxi” with 9 spindles and a maximum working speed of up to 200 m/min under a maximum work dimension of 100x300 mm.

Products list

Arrival zone of raw materials as well as storage area for ready products. Even if the previous owners, such as GA-list and GAPRO had a sourcing strategy in Northern Sweden, or North of the parts even bordering to the areas near the factory, this has changed over time. Today, most northern Swedish saw mills are themselves already planing and reprocessing individually, which means that Willwood has needed to widen its sourcing strategy and also go abroad. In particular the new sourcing strategy puts a stoner focus on Angara Pine from the Angara river and on Siberian Larch, will be focus for further distribution in Europe and the USA and where we are convinced we already keep the widest range of products on stock.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
