Glommen Skog markets forestry products and works to promote the professional expertise of its members and of the forestry sector.
Financial considerations were the main incentive for establishing Glommen Skog over 100 years ago (1903). Forest owners wanted to improve their financial situation, thereby relieving a crisis in the sector, while at the same time promoting sales of their products. This is still a primary concern today.

Industrial development and investment
Since the establishment industrial ownership and development has been one of the primary concerns. Investments in sawmills, paper- and wood processing industry has been essential for developing industries with solvency and processing capacity to cover our owner’s need of marketing conditions for their products. Today we are the main shareholder in Moelven Industries ASA. Our investment is based on the importance of developing a wood processing industry with a leading position towards defined markets.
