As of January this year, the wood processing company UAB Juodeliai has launched its new website www.juodeliaiperka.lt, which focuses on purchasing round timber.

The aim of creating this new website was to avoid wood selling agents and to have the possibility to communicate with every forest owner directly. By eliminating agency fees, we are able to offer forest owners better purchasing prices. UAB Juodeliai prices are public and accessible 24/7. All those interested in selling round timber are welcome to contact us directly at their own convenience, either by filling out a timber sales form, by contacting us and consulting online, or by sending an email.

Starting today, forest owners do not have to worry about delivering round timber to UAB Juodeliai divisions, because our company is ready to pick them up directly from the forest.

16/01/2020 /  UAB Juodeliai turns 25

Wood processing company UAB Juodeliai completed another successful year by celebrating its 25th anniversary. It has started operating in 1994 with only one production facility and now the company is proud to have three. The fourth production facility, which will house the world’s fastest short packing elements line, is to be opened in autumn this year.

Over the course of 25 years of operation the team of UAB Juodeliai grew considerably. Currently in the administration department and in three production facilities in Akmenynai, Jūrė and Radviliškis the number of employees reaches over 400. With the opening of the new production facility this number will sky-rocket to over 500.

In the recent 20 years of the company’s operation its turnover grew from EUR 2 million to EUR 47 million. Correspondingly, the company’s production capacity grew from 18 thousand m3 to almost 250 thousand m3, of which more than 90 % goes to export. This growth is also a contribution of the company’s representatives in Germany and in China.

The capacity of the new production facility of wood processing company UAB Juodeliai will be twice as high compared to the currently operating three production facilities. Upon the implementation of the investment project in 2020, UAB Juodeliai opts to become the second largest pallet elements manufacturer in Europe and to increase its turnover to over 110 million EUR.

Apart from all of the above, the company is also member to different associations and has been evaluated a number of times for the improvement of investment climate in Radviliškis and Marijampolė districts and has implemented ISO standards. Some memorable moments from the anniversary celebration held in the MO museum, one of the most innovative museums in Lithuania (sponsored by UAB Juodeliai), are shown in pictures.
