Södra Interiör has decided to build a new shared logistics centre in Sweden. It will be located in Strömsnäsbruk and will replace most of the current warehouses. The aim of this initiative is to streamline and improve service to the Swedish and Danish markets and to enhance the competitiveness of Södra Interiör.

Södra Interiör is acquiring flooring manufacturer Föllinge Golv AB. The company is situated just north of Östersund, employs six members of staff and produces around 40,000 square metres of solid wood flooring per year. Södra Interiör will be taking over on 1 January 2013.
Owned by 51,000 private forest owners and a group of private companies, Södra Sweden has made its name as a high-quality producer of sawn and planed timber goods, interior products and paper pulp. One of Södra’s subsidiaries in Denmark, Södra Interiör A/S with headquarters in Åbyhøj, functions as a connector between the Scandinavian and Central European markets, and sells floorings, wooden ceilings and mouldings.
A weak international economic situation and massive fluctuations in currency exchange rates have adversely affected the markets for Södra's primary products and contributed to a negative result for the first three quarters of the year. However, price levels have stabilised on the pulp market and a price increase was implemented in October.
