The transaction brings no significant changes in Puidukoda’s operations, which will be continued under the management of the current CEO Mr Peeter Matson.

“For the past 17 years, I’ve invested most of my time and energy to develop Puidukoda. As a result, Puidukoda has become a strong, known and well-functioning company. With doubt, Rose Group is a good and capable owner in continuing Puidukoda’s further development. I owe many thanks to all employees, customers and cooperation partners who have played their role in Puidukoda’s successful development” says Mr Enn Kinnas, Puidukoda’s founder and former owner.

According to the owner of Rose Group, Mr Michel Rose, Puidukoda is a well-functioning and fast developing planing mill with strong position in European and Asian markets. “In addition to new markets, the acquisition provides Rose Group better and more flexible access to high quality Russian and Baltic raw material.
