Sonae Arauco invests €100 million in Germany

Supplier of engineered wood products Sonae Arauco will be investing more than €100m in its Meppen industrial unit in Emsland, Lower Saxony, Germany to expand its AGEPAN System of sustainable construction components for roofs, walls and floors with additional products. A new production line for wood fibre insulation materials is to be built there, which from 2025 will expand the portfolio to include flex insulation, pressure-resistant wood fibre insulation boards, and blow-in insulation. “Our investment in the Meppen plant is the largest in Sonae Arauco’s history so far,” said Steffen Körner, general manager and NEE Industrial Operations director at Sonae Arauco. “Meppen is a key plant for us in Germany, because it is where we produce our insulation solutions for construction.” Buildings today account for more than 40% of energy consumption and are responsible for more than 36% of greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy use. Wood can offer a sustainable solution because it has the special ability to store CO2. Sonae Arauco therefore focuses on the development of sustainable wood-based solutions with high-added value for construction, furniture, and interior design. Made from renewable and recyclable resources, their products are part of a circular biological economy and contribute to a better future. “Our wood-based solutions combine an outstanding environmental balance with a robust technical performance. The AGEPAN System stands for the highest functionality in combination with sustainability and healthy living,” said Bernd Runge, Sonae Arauco’s construction system project manager. “By expanding our range with the new production line, we are exploiting our potential even better and further driving an environmentally conscious economy of the future. This strategic step gives us the opportunity to be part of the upheaval in the construction industry, in which wood as a material is extremely relevant.”... [більше ...]
