History - Eighty years of passion

Skanditrä has been dedicated to working with timber since 1941. The company is now a global operator buying and selling hardwood products, logs, sawn timber products and semi-finished products all over the world. Our main customers are companies in the flooring, joinery and furniture industry. We´ve been expanding our products range since 2009 in response to the demand from other sections of the timber industry and building trade.

Control & accessibility

Quality assurance. To ensure our ability to deliver a quality poduct, we employ our own quality inspectors in every country of origin to carry out pre-delivery inspections at each sawmill. Additional quality controls are carried out when deliveries are made to our terminals: one on arrival and one during packing after drying. Our buyers visit all of our suppliers several times a year to safeguard quality and delivery performance.


The concept of top quality encompasses more than the properties of the wood. Just as important today is how the wood is harvested and where.

Skanditrä is certified according to FSC® and PEFC:
