The delivery consists of both green sorting and sticker stacker machinery with peripherals. Automation installation for the sorting system is delivered by Jartek AI Oy. The delivery is the biggest green sorting line ever built in Finland, according to Jartek.

In Kajaani, the project’s preparations are already in full swing and equipment installations will begin in a year’s time. Production trial operation is scheduled to begin at the end of 2022.

Pölkky Oy does not state the exact amount of the investment, but according to CEO Petteri Virranniemi, it is about 10 million euros.

Pölkky Oy acquired the Kajaani sawmill, or Kajaaniwood Oy, from Tihisenniemi in Kajaani in 2012.

“The new line will be installed in the existing building with the shortest possible production stop,” says Virranniemi.

The first development project of Pölkky’s investment program, Taivalkoski’s planing mill, is completed and the production has recently started. The planing mill will increase the company’s turnover approximately by EUR 30 million.

Jartek also supplied automation solutions for the planing plant and dry sorting at the Taivalkoski production plant.
