Koskisen sawn goods are now available primed but also painted.

The annual capacity of Koskisen’s new paint shop is approximately 15,000 m³ of painted products. Nearly half of the painted products are sold in Finland. The products can be painted in a range of colours according to the customer’s needs.

Customers can reduce the amount of their own work by ordering the product not only primed but also painted. Painting of the products is part of Koskisen’s “one-stop-shop” concept, in which customers get all the sawn goods they need, from basic sawn goods to further-processed products, with just one phone call.

- Our range of further-processed products includes both interior and exterior cladding products, strength-graded and dimensional structural timber, and an increasing amount of primed and painted exterior cladding products for both domestic and foreign markets, explains Timo Piispanen, Product Manager with the Sawn and Processed Timber unit.

Colours by Teknos

Customers can choose the colour they want from either Teknos’s or other manufacturers’ colour charts. Koskisen’s professional, competent personnel will be able to choose the right colour easily using Teknos’s new tinting system.

- Deliveries consisting of a few hundred metres of sawn timber with a unique profile and colour are what today’s customer service is really about. And our special deliveries come at the right price, the right time and the right place.

Don’t forget the final painting!

Industrial painting guarantees more consistent quality than when painting is done outdoors, since the moisture level of the sawn timber, and the painting conditions and amount of paint are controlled. Buying painted exterior panelling saves money, as it frees up time for other construction work.

The final surface quality, recommended by the paint manufacturers, is achieved only after the third layer of paint. Then the wood is perfectly protected, and its lifetime and repainting intervals are extended. If the customer wishes, Koskisen can deliver the product ready with three layers of paint.
