THE EUR 11 MILLION ORDER FOR PLYWOOD MILL RECEIVED IN SEPTEMBER TO BE DELIVERED

TO FRANCE

The order for plywood mill machines and equipment announced by Raute with a stock

exchange release on 12 September 2006 will be delivered to Thebault Plyland

S.A.S. in France. The order is worth EUR 11 million and it includes the machines,

lines and automation for a completely new greenfield mill. The machine deliveries

and installation are scheduled for the summer of 2007.

Thebault is a well-established plywood manufacturer. The company owns plywood

mills in France using okoume and maritime pine as raw material, and a mill in

Gabon producing veneer of tropical species. The company holds a significant

position as a supplier of both okoume and maritime pine plywood, and the main

market for its products is Europe. The earlier Raute delivery in the 1990s

included the production lines for maritime pine plywood. The new mill-scale

project will be the first true greenfield plywood project since the beginning of

the 1990s in Europe.

"The focus in the construction of the new mill was especially on the flexibility,

the production efficiency and the high utilization rate of raw material. Plyland

will have the possibility to manufacture an exclusive 2800 x 1250 mm sized panel

the construction of wooden houses. Raute's competence in and excellent references

from mill-scale deliveries in view of our interests were the decisive factors for

placing the order with Raute. We are very satisfied with our long-term

partnership and we wish to continue the development of our production together

with Raute also in future." the three brothers Jean-Charles, Benoît and Henri-

Jean Thebault state

The received order further enhances Raute's position as the leading technology

supplier for mill-scale units in the plywood industry.
