Pölkky Oy has selected Michael Weinig AG from Germany as the main equipment supplier for its planing mill. Weinig will not only be delivering a new planer but also the required mechanization and automation as a turnkey solution. Equipment deliveries for the line will begin in April 2020, and the line will be operational in September 2020.


Maanrakennus Vääräniemi Oy and Kuljetuspolar Oy will work on the foundations for the planing hall, and Lehto Tilat Oy is in charge of the hall’s overall design and construction.

Pölkky Oy is the largest private wood processing company in northern Finland. Pölkky Oy uses 1.4 million cubic metres of raw timber annually, across its four sawmills in Finland.
