It is time to build large sawmills
size 
It is only now that the concentration of production in the Polish timber industry is taking speed. It is planned by KPPD as well as TPPD.  For many years decentralisation of production was more prevalent. Single sawmill and wood processing plants, previously owned by State Timber Industry Plants of Lower Silesia, Koszalin, Gdask or Greater Poland, were restructured into more or less profitable companies. Small sawmills have not always been stronger than competition, since they only produce lumber and also because of their obsolete technologies and lack of investments.

Currently, however, the industry is at the stage of concentration of production, which is reflected mostly in development of production units increasing the production scale through investments in efficient and specialised machines and devices.   
The concentration of production in many of Polish sawmills is conducted in a specialised way - a modernised or newly constructed plant takes on the task of elemental processing of wood, and other plants process it further. Thus, a change in the production model is observed, from throughput divided into several plants with capacity of ca. 15-30 thousand m3 to a single large plant capable of timber throughput of over 100 thousand m3 per year. 

The concentration of production has its obvious merits. There are possibilities for reducing production costs, reducing management expenses (an increase in production usually leads to a decrease in standing costs, including management expenses, in the total unit cost of production). The logistics of timber supplies is another very important factor in cost reduction. It is enough to mention the space saved when using a single, large yard that is filled with timber to a maximum. 
However, concentration of production may also have negative consequences, such as competition from a  monopoly instead of numerous producers. That was a negative scenario for the concentration of plywood production within the Paged Group after the acquisition of the Sklejka-Pisz factory.
- Now it can be seen that the decision on merging our potential has been right and beneficial to both companies  - says Waldemar Czarnocki, CEO of Paged Sklejka.
