Thank you to Iisveden Metsä & Tommy Lindström for your trust in 1point5 Oy and BM&M Screens.

Yesterday we signed a delivery contract for BM&M's CS counterflow by-product screen for delivery and installation in summer this year.

After seeing the results of testing their own by-products in B&M's test facility in the UK, the decision was very fast. 

Swedish Ingenjörsfirma G. Hedlund AB, represented by 1point5 Oy in Finland, will deliver in the summer of 2023 a by-product handling system for Junnikkala Oy's future sawmill in Oulu.


Junnikkala's Janne Pyy states - Hedlunds commits to be involved in creating a new, more modern, more energy efficient and safer system for handling by-products together with Junnikkala. We are building a facility where the by-products will be handled in a completely different way. Hedlund was able to provide solutions for this.

The Canadian screen manufacturer BM&M, together with the screening giant Rotex have partnered with 1point5 Oy to represent their advanced high-speed gyratory screening solutions in Finland's wood industry


Since 1968 BM&M have delivered over 5000 screening solutions globally, with over 2500 of them in the forest products industries. Klaus Jansson Jr, Sales Director at 1point5 Oy said: "Nordic sawmills have spent too little attention to really maximize the quality and yield of high-quality chips. BM&M screening solutions have new techniques to reduce the amount of chips ending up in sawdust silos and can offer different designs with a smaller footprint as traditional screens."

Patrick Harf, Sales Engineer for BM&M in Europe said: "BM&M are excited to partner with 1point5 Oy in Finland. We are sure that our products will help sawmills to improve their chip quality and screening efficiency. Since BM&M merged with Rotex Europe into The Rotex Group, we are offering spare parts, service and lab-testing from our office in Runcorn/England. Our machines are manufactured in Europe according to European Standards. We are proud the well-connected and dedicated wood experts at 1point5 Oy are partnering with us to have a professional and even more local support in Finland."

Ingenjörsfirma Gösta Hedlund AB, represented by 1point5 Oy, will supply by-product handling equipment for Pölkky Oy's Kajaani project


In the autumn of 2023, the Swedish Ingenjörsfirma Gösta Hedlund AB, represented by 1point5 Oy, will deliver a complete system for chips and sawdust handling to Pölkky Oy's Kajaani sawmill. At the heart of the system are Hedlund's shaftless screw conveyors, which will keep the lower level clean and safe. Lars Lindvall, CEO of Hedlunds, says they are honoured to have been selected the successful vendor in Pölkky's new world class sawmill. - It will be a great place to have our latest technology in Finland. According to Harri Mourujärvi of Pölkky, Hedlunds was chosen as the supplier because their delivery time fit well into the project and because, despite the advanced technology, Hedlunds' price was competitive.
