Södra certifies cladding

Södra’s sawmill at Långasjö has been certified by Swedish Wood for the production of certified pre-painted cladding (Swedish: Certifierad Målad Panel, CMP). CMP is a guarantee for quality-assured and factory-painted external cladding panels.

A certified CMP supplier must meet the requirements and guidelines issued by Swedish Wood.

Södra began producing primed cladding at its sawmill in Långasjö in 2013. The painted cladding has been – and still is – a success, and sales are rising sharply every year.

CMP is taking Södra to the next stage of this development.

All stages of the CMP production process are documented to enable panel traceability and guarantee top quality.

The paints used in CMP production processes are tested and approved by accredited third-party organisations to meet the requirements of applicable standards and regulations.

The paints have been formulated for exterior wood surfaces and applied under optimum conditions, using the right amount of paint to ensure a long service life and uniform results.


Södra was founded in 1938 and is the largest forest-owner association in Sweden, with a membership of more than 50,000 forest owners.

Södra is also an international forest industry Group, with 3,500 employees.

A balance between production efficiency and nature conservation guides everything the company does. Södra produces timber, interior wood products, paper and textile pulp, and green energy.

They use every part of the tree, and are always looking to develop new products from this fantastic, renewable raw material.

Södra is one of the leading European suppliers of pulp for the global market, and has one of the largest sawmill operations in Sweden.

Through value-generating relationships and a long-term approach, Södra is leading the way for the next generation of forestry.
