HISTORY

The sawmill in Hökön was established at its present location in Hökön in 1947. The company was owned by Svenska Stålpressningen (a steel pressing mill) in Olofström, and this company also ran a large peat bog outside of Hökön. The sawmill was run in its own company, Ållekulla AB.

Svenska Stållpressningen sold the company to Skåneskog Ekonomisk Förening in 1972. The company was acquired by Lönsboda Träförädling in 1978 and investments were made in a combined raw and dry sorting line with 35 compartments, three chamber driers and a planning mill with a cutting line. Additionally, 5,000 square metres of timber warehouses for storage of sawn wood were built.

In 1989 the business was sold to AB Möckelns Sågverk. The operations were coordinated with Möckelngruppen and the production line was focused on sawing pinewood, and to a lesser extent sawing larch wood. When AB Möckelns Sågverk in Älmhult was closed down, Möckeln Wood AB was formed, with start of production in January 2012.
