GG Capital has signed up a new client, BYGGMAX, last week. GG Capital, whose clients already include Shell, Kanava, K-Rauta and Motoral, have been suppling firewood and wood products to over 10 countries since 2010.
In 2019, the company became one of the largest suppliers of firewood to the Scandinavian market, with 50% of the firewood being supplied by GG Capital to retailers and wholesalers.
The demand and trust from buyers increased when GG Capital became the first in Sweden and Finland to receive the SWAN certificate. This guarantees buyers that the wood comes from sustainable forestry producers.

FIREWOOD INDUSTRY IS ON THE RISE
Firewood heats over 40% of households in Scandinavia. In February 2021, the demand for firewood surged due to cold weather, the pandemic and also fuel and gas shortages in the US, Yemen, Russia and many other countries.
However, it is not only being used as a sustainable heating resource but for other purposes as well.
For example, wood fibers are currently making up 1% of total plastic production. This is expected to grow as the world is aiming to replace plastic, also cross-laminated timber is being used to replace carbon-intensive concrete and steel. Today, wood-based fibers represent about 6% of all textiles.
