The first sawmill was erected at Iggesund in 1572, merely for the requirements of the surrounding country, and in order to supply the iron works with their need of chareoal. This little ancient mill was the progenitor of the present large wood products industry which now forms so important a part of the company's establishment. The Hudilcsvall Sawmill Co. was merged in the Iggesund in 1903, and the company is now operating several sawmills and planing mills. The total number of frames is 24, of planers 5 and 8 edgers besides all the necessary auxiliary machines. The timber is supplied by the company's large forests which cover an area of about 518,450 acres.
