About Taigatech

The company was formed with a vision of sustainable forestry by making Artificial Intelligence available to sawmills. The name connecting the northern coniferous forest belt “Taiga” with new innovation. With world-leading research from Chalmers University of Technology, we create solutions to help our customers reach their goals by contributing to increased saw yield, availability and productivity.

We believe that the forest and wooden products have an important role to play in the society of the future. We also believe that AI and new technology will lead to increased productivity and quality. Therefore, we want to help our customers solve their most important problems by developing new innovative solutions.

Our history

Taigatech's roots

The idea for Taigatech came from a bachelor's thesis at a sawmill from one of the leading Nordic sawmill groups. The objective of our first project was to digitize the value chain by creating traceability of the raw material with image analysis. With new technology from Chalmers University of Technology, we created a unique fingerprint of each log's end surface.

After that, we have developed solutions to control log turning at the saw, camera systems for quality inspection and automated process monitoring. Today, the team consists of six dedicated employees with an office in Gothenburg.
