Södra was founded in 1938 and is the largest forest-owner association in Sweden, with a membership of more than 50,000 forest owners. Södra is also an international forest industry Group, with 3,600 employees. A balance between production efficiency and nature conservation guides everything that we do. We produce timber, interior wood products, paper and textile pulp, and green energy. We use every part of the tree, and are always looking to develop new products from this fantastic, renewable raw material. Södra is one of the leading European suppliers of pulp for the global market, and has one of the largest sawmill operations in Sweden. Through value-generating relationships and a long-term approach, Södra is leading the way for the next generation of forestry.
