The ATA Group is one of Sweden’s largest privately owned sawmill and pulp production groups. The industry currently consists of 6 sawlines, 7 planing lines, 7 kilns, 36 chamber kilns and pulp industry. Of the solid production about 15% of reach the Swedish market and 85% is exported. Besides the sawmills, the Group have one of the world’s most efficient pulp factories in the world, Waggeryd Cell AB. 85% of the pulp production goes for export market. We are largely self-sufficient in wood chips. Chip volume required is about 1 300 000 m3. Production of sawn goods amounts to about 430 000 m3 in which about 325 000 m3 is processed.
The by-products (bark, sawdust, shavings) from the production at the sawmills is used as fuel for their own solid fuel plants and are also sold. Buyers are e.g. Alvesta Energy with district heating plant at the sawmill in Moheda, other buyers are heating plants in Växjo, Värnamo and in the Skåne region. We seek as short shipments as possible to the consumers.
We have 7 timber trucks, 3 chip trucks and 25 drivers running commodity around the clock. In order to meet the raw material requirements of the sawmills, 100 fully loaded truck and trailer every day are needed. Timber trucks also run pulpwood to various industries. Chips cars are running products and sawn timber from own sawmills. We strive for short, efficient and environmentally friendly transportation. The cars have environmental engines of the latest model.
