The feel of home, comfortability and better quality of living – we refine these from strong northern wood. Out of this renewable material, we manufacture high-quality building solutions for homes, workplaces and public spaces. As part of the Pölkky family, our entire value chain – the forest owners as well as our resellers and customers – all have a role in producing better living environments with us. Pölkky has a long tradition in refining wood, and from many families there are multiple generations working with us.
At Pölkky, there are roots for quality living.
Renewable, responsibly produced wood is the only sustainable building material. Our PEFC responsibility-certified wood is harvested in a sustainable manner from the great managed forests of the north with consideration for biodiversity. Our wood procurement promotes ecologically, financially, socially and culturally responsible forestry in our area of operation.
Pölkky Oy is the largest private wood processing company in Northern Finland. The sawmills and further processing facilities run by Pölkky Oy are located in the heart of Finland’s best raw timber region, in Kuusamo, Taivalkoski and Kajaani. Pine represents 75% and spruce 25% of our production. Pölkky also has a pressure treatment facility in Oulu.
We own the entire process from procurement to sawmill operations and the manufacturing of processed products. This ensures consistent high production standards and reliable deliveries. Our modern production technology, logistics knowhow, responsible personnel and reliable deliveries help our customers to succeed.
