The purpose of this thesis is to study whether there is a demand for sawn wood products of large dimensions and planed goods among Wallnäs AB:s customers. The thesis consist of two main parts, one survey among Wallnäs present customers and another one which purpose is to increase Wallnäs customer base. Finally there is a chapter that describes what properties the raw material has to have in order to produce the demanded products. The survey to the present customers was conducted through a questioner. A sample of those who stated an interest for either sawn wood products of large dimensions or planed goods, were later contacted for a telephone interview. To reach out to new customers, relevant companies has been identified through the Swedish Trade Councils data base and through the member list of the Timber Trade Federation. By doing a literature study and through interviews with the personal at Wallnäs, i've gained the information behind the chapter concerning prerequisites for the raw material and the production of sawn wood products of large dimensions. The results show that there is a significant demand for sawn wood products of large dimensions, primarily whitewood. I refer to sawn wood products of large dimensions as 250-300 mm in width and 50-100 mm in thickness. During the interviews with the interested companies I've learned that the main use of the lumber is in construction. The demand that construction lumber sets on the wood is primarly firmness. To acquire this, the timber has to be slow growing with a small yearly increment and have the same fibre direction throughout the wood piece. Among the new customers that I've managed to establish contact with, British companies dominate. Most of the companies are intressted in buying sawn wood products of standard dimensions, but also planed wood products.
