Södra acquires wood processing companies from Rörvik Timber

Mannheimer Swartling has advised Södra Timber in its acquisition of Rörvik Timber’s pressure treatment plant in Åstorp. The company currently has an annual production permit for 150,000 cubic metres of pressure-treated timber.

Mannheimer Swartling has also advised Södra’s business unit for interior products, Gapro, in its acquisition of BJU in Rottne, one of Sweden’s leading producers of glued-joint board for furniture and the building trade. The seller in this transaction also was Rörvik Timber.

The partners responsible for the matter at Mannheimer Swartling were Martin Ericsson, Eva Hägg and Olle Flygt, assisted primarily by Jenny Brandt, Kristoffer Stråth, and Peter Sjöberg.
