Unilin buys Romanian sawmill  

Unilin has bought an industrial sawmill in Romania to boost the capacity of its engineered wood operations.

The Pergo and Quick-Step owner has bought the production site in Braşov, Romania from Austrian timber and wood-based materials supplier JAF Group. 

The deal includes land, buildings and industrial assets. More than 100 employees will transfer to Unilin, with the group planning ‘important investments’ at the site. 

‘Our direct access to premium logs is now guaranteed. The skills and experience of our new colleagues at the Braşov plant, combined with Unilin’s drive for innovation and design, is very promising. We expect to make significant steps forward,’ says Jens Van Rompaey, Unilin Flooring general manager wood.

‘This integration clearly shows we are committed to the engineered wood/parquet category. It will allow us to provide even more value for our customers, in terms of quality and sustainability of our products and services. Our mission is to use wood in the smartest way and store carbon for as long as possible,’ says Ruben Desmet, Unilin Flooring president.
