Quality, sustainability and certification work
Our operations are based on a long-term approach and sustainability in everything from ownership and raw materials to production and end products. We are continuously working to improve our sustainability management and to fulfil applicable certification requirements.

Quality
The level of quality that ELE delivers to customers is specifically tailored to customer requirements. The raw materials in ELE’s products come from a geographically defined catchment area, yielding a product of uniformly high quality. Our level of quality is consistent with no significant variation, making ELE a safe and reliable supplier of wood products.

Regular checks are conducted on all processes at the sawmill in Kilafors: timber reception, timber sorting, the sawmill, the dryers, the trimming plant and, ultimately, in connection with delivery. Each sorted length of timber is marked with a numeric code that indicates who processed the specific item. We place great emphasis on ensuring that our level of quality is identical for all deliveries. Our concept of quality also includes ensuring that the customer receives their goods at the right time. All lengths of timber, except grade VII, are marked with our shipping mark on both ends.

Sustainability
ELE works consistently with wood, a renewable raw material that contributes positively to our climate. Our business is based on long-term perspective and sustainability in both ownership, the forest and end products. We strive for long-term relationships with our suppliers and customers that are based on quality, trust, and cooperation to constantly develop together.

We must be a secure and inclusive employer where we strive for each employee to reach their full potential. Our business must be developed together with the communities in which we operate.
