Material handling and wood processing solutions: Ready for the industrial revolutions of tomorrow

The world is changing; the march of digitalization and industrialization means that technology must be ready to bridge new boundaries. Our industrial material handling solutions and wood-processing products serve global supply chains from forests, fields, quarries and mines, through to manufacturing, mills, power plants and ports.

We have pioneered innovations in the industries that we serve, adding value through the application of market-leading material handling and industrial wood processing technology.

Bruks Siwertell is transforming the face of dry bulk handling and wood processing by setting new standards in efficiency, sustainability and environmental protection. Through our industrial material handling solutions and wood processing technology, our aim is to contribute to the sustainability of global industries as a whole.

Equipping power industries for change

Within the power-generation industry, companies are exploring sustainable methods to meet rising energy demands. Our material handling expertise and technology, developed over decades of coal handling and wood processing, are put to excellent use in the power-generation sector, and extend from traditional fossil fuels into the growing bioenergy and biofuel markets. 

Our industrial wood processing systems efficiently handle and process the huge range of materials that come under the biomass umbrella, from wood products such as logs, urban and construction and demolition waste wood, wood chips, waste wood residues, bark and hogged fuel, and sawdust, through to agricultural waste. 

From the sustainable harvesting of forests, through to truck-receiving systems, industrial wood-processing technology for pellet production, vessel loading and unloading, right up to storing and reclaiming biomass to feed the boilers of renewable power facilities, our industrial material handling solutions and wood processing equipment is ready to serve.

Meeting market demand for e-commerce

For decades, we have met the changing needs of the pulp and paper industry, boosting yields and delivering material handling and wood-processing equipment that unloads, loads, receives, chips, screens, processes, conveys, and stacks and reclaims wood-based materials. These needs have changed substantially in recent times with the significant growth in e-commerce, driving huge increases in demand for container board, cardboard and carton board packaging.

Delivering sustainability into the heart of construction

The bulk handling and wood processing requirements of the construction industry are hugely varied. Our Siwertell ship unloaders, loaders, conveyors, and storage and reclaiming systems are trusted machines, handling many of the construction industry’s raw materials including cement, clinker and aggregates, through to iron ore and metallurgic coal for steel manufacturing, and bauxite and alumina for aluminum production. 

Meanwhile, our wood-processing systems can be found throughout the panelboard, engineered wood boards, veneer and sawmill sectors; in many cases making the most sustainable use of premium wood cuts through to sawdust, by-products, wood residues and end-of-life timber. Our technology serves virtually every type of facility that requires industrial material handling solutions and processed wood. Our industrial wood processing capabilities extend to reclaiming waste wood from the construction and demolition (C&D) sector, where very powerful C&D recycling and green waste machinery can transform waste wood to valuable fibers.  


Feeding the world

Being part of the world’s food industry supply chain is a privilege and one that has growing importance as populations rise. We offer ship unloading, loading, conveying and storage and reclaiming systems that carefully handle both the raw materials for food production, such as fertilizers, and the end products such as cereals, wheat, soya meal and grains. 

We have a worldwide reputation for successful fertilizer handling and handling all forms of agricultural dry bulk commodities. Our industrial material handling technology offers a significant advantage over all other continuous ship unloading systems, including very low rates of material degradation, ensuring the quality of grain shipments from ship to shore.

Essential support for vital services

Each of the industries that we serve is vital to continuous global development. Our commitment to all these starts in delivering the best quality, most reliable and efficient industrial material handling solutions and wood processing systems that we can offer. Alongside this is our commitment to service throughout operational lifetimes with planned, on-demand, and emergency support.
