Dear customer and business connection

Kære kunde og forretningsforbindelse

Yet another busy year is drawing to a close and it is time to wind down a little and
take stock. Our customers’ saws have been hard at work, and Luja Sawtech’s
activities have continued to grow throughout 2015. 125 days of travel, over
14000 m3 increased production at our customers, 160,000 litres of Luja Bio-Oil
sent out to work, and 300 m2 of additional office and storage facilities taken into
We were definitely not bored in 2015! 

At Team Luja Sawtech, we are looking forward to a tremendous 2016 with more
positive developments and exciting challenges from our customers. We are ready
to give your machines a boost and to set new standards for the performance
you can expect from your production.
See you at the saws!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a successful 2016. Kind regards,

March 2015

More space for development and growth

Mere plads til udvikling og vækst

Luja Sawtech is enjoying rapid growth, and has therefore expanded its office and
warehouse facilities by a further 300 square metres, although at the same address
as previously. At the same time, we have strengthened our Board of Directors with
increased focus on organisational growth so that we are well prepared to face any
challenges this brings.

Best exhibition ever

Trä & Teknik 2014The recent Wood Products & Technology 2014 trade fair in Gothenburg is by far the best
exhibition we have taken part in to date, with huge interest in our stand from visiting
industry players.

We had some fantastic days and returned home with many serious leads. We look forward
to meeting with them over autumn. We can clearly sense optimism in the industry, and
that our customers are enjoying better earnings. There is also major interest in the
solutions and products we offer the market, and sawmills in particular have taken note of
our existence.

We had a competition running on our 'bar circuit', this year which was well received by
visitors, who showed an impressive determination to achieve the best lap times :)

Thank you for your interest – see you around the machines :)

Luja preparing for expansion

In the course of 2014, our customers will meet several new faces at Luja.

For some time now we have been challenged in terms of capacity and sales
support due to increased activity and customer intake. We are therefore
taking the first step to remove the bottleneck so we can service new customers.

Initially, we will expand the organization with a technical back-office function
and sales support, and over the slightly longer term we will take on several
more technicians whose main job will be to service sawmills.

Welcome back ‘Søren2’

Søren Aagaard (‘Søren2’) has returned to work following long-term illness.
Some of our customers noted the absence of one of our talented service technicians since
the beginning of 2013 when he fell ill. We are happy to report that he has returned to
work in fine fettle and we are looking forward to going on the road with him once again.

Welcome back ☺

Upgrading of Waco BKL. Goal: 74 metres per minute in 150 mm cut

Luja has won the order to install, upgrade and start up a Waco BKL at Wood Support in
Sweden. The goal is for the saw to cut 150 mm spruce cladding at a rate of 74 m/minute
and up to 80 m/minute if the wood is to be planed.
This goal will be achieved by re-crowning the wheels, realigning the saw, optimising the
lubricating system and stabilising the blade guides. We are grateful for the customer’s
show of confidence and are ready to go to work!

Expected delivery: December 2013

Service contract with Pontrilas Sawmills

Pontrilas TimberOver the past year, Luja has implemented a major upgrade of the main line at Pontrilas
Sawmills in the UK. Our work has resulted in a significant increase in production line
capacity, improved end-product quality and increased product demand.
Collaboration paved the way for the signing of a service contract where Luja is responsible
for ensuring optimal bandsaw function. Payment is based on per produced m3.
We look forward to jointly establishing new production output standards.

Relaunch of Luja

Trä & TeknikIn connection with a new strategy for Luja, we have relaunched the company with a
visual change, a new name, a new logo and a new website.

This does not, however, change who we are and what we do. The band saw is still
our primary focus. It has always been and will continue to be for many years to come
- we are not going to change that.

But we have changed our name to Luja Sawtech as the old name failed to signal what we actually work with.

Because it is actually a technology in itself to make the band saw work optimally. And
to make it work optimally, we need to look at the entire line around the saw. Our work
consists of a number of tests and a lot of development. This is why we feel that
Sawtech describes our work in the best possible way.

We hope that you will like this relaunch of Luja and we look forward to working with
you about the band saws, which are still our core competence.

Wood Products & Technology 2012

Trä & TeknikIt was a great fair. We had four great days at Wood and Technique 2012 and we enjoyed
meeting our customers, partners and business relations.

However, work calls again and we brought home some interesting contacts that we look
forward to get in touch with again.

We are also currently working a large project in the UK and among our other future
projects, we would also like to mention that Lida Timber has asked us to install our
LT01 lubrication system, which we used at the fair.

Thank you for your interest and we wish everyone a pleasant autumn.

Luja starts in the Great Britain

Pontrilas TimberLuja would like to welcome a new customer in a new market. 

Pontrilas Timber UK has chosen to work with Luja to optimise their band saw line, 
their day-to-day work routines with the saws and development of a improved tooth
profile for their production method.

The goal is to double the band saw blades running time, halve the number of
unscheduled blade changes and increase the annual production by approx. 8000 m3.

We look forward to cooperating with Pontrilas Timber and appreciate the order.

Summer greetings

Summer is around the corner and summer is one of LUJA's busiest periods. We have
a lot of work when the rest of the timber industry is on summer break.

We have spent the last few months preparing these major projects and at the same
time, we have spent some time testing tooth profiles for cutting of dry pine wood
and spruce in Norway as well as Sweden.  And the results are actually quite exciting!

And remember, it is in August, we are going to the  Trä & Teknik fair in Göteborg,
where you can find us at stand B07:21. We look very much forward to seeing you there.

We wish everyone a great summer.
