29/07/2014 /  First Train Wagons in UAB ‘Juodeliai’ Workshop in Radviliškis

Radviliškis manufacturing department of UAB ‘Juodeliai’ wood processing company stands out not only due to its computerized wood processing infrastructure and specialized equipment that allows the preparation of wood products of exceptionally high quality but also due to its convenient geographic location. The nearby railroad was one of the reasons why this particular region was chosen for the expansion of the company.

UAB ‘Juodeliai’ started commercial production in the Radviliškis workshop on 1 May 2014, increased its production volumes, and is waiting for the first train wagons with wood material to arrive in the coming days. UAB ‘Juodeliai’ has its own railroad branch line for loading and unloading cargo in the company’s site.

30/06/2014 /  Wood processing company UAB Juodeliai opens sawn timber processing facilities in Radviliškis, the most modern facilities of this type in the Baltic States

To increase export volumes and expand the selection of products, UAB Juodeliai, one of the largest wood processing companies in the Baltic States, implemented the project “The Radviliškis wood processing facilities of UAB Juodeliai” (VP2-2.1-ŪM-06-K-01-004) (project start date: July 2012) in the framework of the Invest LT-2 measure of Priority Axis 2 “Increasing efficiency of enterprises and promoting a supportive business environment” of the Operational Programme for Economic Growth for 2007–2013.

The main purpose of the project was to launch the most modern wood processing facilities in the Baltic region and Poland. The facilities are designed to produce high quality wood products using an innovative and fully computerised production technology so that the company can expand the selection of products and obtain considerable quantities of biofuel in the course of the production process.

The total value of the project exceeded LTL 42 million, of which LTL 4 million was obtained in the framework of the EU-funded Invest LT-2.
Andrius Zimnickas, Director General of UAB Juodeliai, is delighted that the company successfully completed its ambitious goal in June 2014: to open in Radviliškis the most modern wood processing facilities in the Baltic States and Poland. The facilities occupy an area of nearly 8 hectares. The production process is fully automated: the sawing process is controlled by computer systems that guarantee the high precision of the dimensions of wooden pallets and the flawless quality of wooden products. To date, 95 new jobs have been provided at the new facilities. The inauguration of the facilities will enable the company to expand the scope of production even further, react to market changes more promptly, offer shorter deadlines for completing customer orders, improve and implement advanced wood processing processes, and expand to new foreign markets, e.g. the UAE and China.

We are delighted to be able to contribute to the increase in the economic value of both the Suvalkija and Aukštaitija regions. We would like to express our gratitude to AB Šiaulių Bankas and Radviliškis District Government for their collaboration in implementing the project.

13/11/2013 /  UAB Juodeliai to participate in an international trade fair in India!

On November 14-27 India welcomes manufacturers from all over the world to an international trade fair. Thanks to the Lithuanian Embassy in India UAB Juodeliai is also going to be at the fair.

This annual event brings together a lot of Indian and international traders and hosts about 2-3 million visitors. The fair lasts for 14 days and is the biggest trade fair in the country.

UAB Juodeliai wood products are exported not only to Europe, but also to countries in Asia such as China, Korea, India and the Near East, thus the meeting with Indian traders will not be the first for the Lithuanian company. The fair will provide the perfect opportunity for networking and presenting the wood products made by UAB Juodeliai to a wide range of traders both from India and all over the world.

The Lithuanian stand at the trade fair will be special as it is going to be a Lithuanian log house. It will host UAB Juodeliai along with 10 other Lithuanian companies.

01/08/2013 /  Short-term scheduled repair of production facilities

On 5–16 August 2013, a scheduled repair of our most powerful wood processing facilities will be implemented. The operation of the sawmills of UAB Juodeliai is very intensive, and repair and upgrading are therefore necessary in order to retain the current wood product production volumes and the premium quality of the products.

The volume of production of wooden pallet blanks in August will be reduced by almost a third due to the suspension of the production facilities. For this reason, the company will not be able to satisfy all the needs of the customers in full in terms of the supply of the required quantities of products.

UAB Juodeliai would like to note that this is a temporary suspension only. As soon as repair and upgrading work is completed, everything will return to normal and both the maximum possible production volumes and the premium quality of the products will be guaranteed.
