A small Finnish company, which is active in manufacturing of wooden structures, wants to sell their production equipment and systems for high quality small diameter wooden garden equipment and furniture under an acquisition agreement. Plans exist for both current and future garden products, which can be manufactured with this production system.
The Finnish company, which is active in manufacturing of wooden structures, is looking for a partner, which is willing to enter into an acquisition agreement for the production system of high quality small diameter roundwood garden structures and furniture. This unique system has been developed in Finland together with a European research project for the use of 80 mm diameter roundwood. It is by far most advanced processed product of Roundwood and its strength equals 50 x 150 mm sawmaterial. There are several completed products like gazebos (with drawings) and furniture for interior and exterior use and also some new plans of future products. The products have attracted widespread interest in Europe, which is very important concerning the export potential. The Finnish company estimates the biggest potential to be in Germany, England, Sweden, Norway and Russia. The Finnish company has new projects under development and wants to focus on these projects. The company considers that the production system of small diameter Roundwood structures is ready for bigger industrial production. The production system would be very suitable for companies who are looking for extra products to complement their existing business, for example a manufacturer of pre-fabricated garden structures. There are Research notes available of roundwood product markets in England and Germany published by the university of Joensuu Faculty of Forestry. The Finnish company is ready to provide the new owner a short (few days) introduction/training on the use of the production system.
