Timber industry

Valued all over the world!

The biggest investments made by the Kaamos Group in the timber industry divide between the companies Valmos and Woodbakers.

Woodbakers produces sawn timber at the biggest sawmill in Belarus and sells it worldwide. The Vitebskaja Lesopilka sawmill, which is based fully on Estonian capital, is a subsidiary of the company.

Valmos is one of the world’s biggest producers of birch veneer. No chemicals are used to make natural and environmentally friendly veneer. Almost all of the production is exported to Europe, North America and Asia.

We hold the FSC® certificate, which allows us to sell our timber as FSC Mix and FSC Controlled Wood.

Valmos

Valmos is a modern veneer factory that was established in 2004. Due to its geographic location and the accessibility of raw materials, the majority of the factory’s production is rotary-cut and sliced birch veneer (0.55 mm thick). The factory has 9000 m2 of production space. The necessary birch stump is procured from Estonia and Latvia. Exports comprise 97% of our sales, the majority going to Central and Eastern Europe, North America and Asia. The veneer manufactured at Valmos is environmentally friendly and natural. No chemicals are used to make the product. The necessary thermal energy is obtained from the factory’s own boiler house, which is heated with production waste. Read more www.valmos.ee/en
