Customer Spotlight – KFL

Customer Spotlight – KFL

Based in Kawerau, Kajavala Forestry Ltd (KFL) have a talented and committed team who get the best from the trees they process.

The company was founded in 1972 as a small forest harvesting business by Tapio Kajavala and his wife.

The mid 90s saw KFL experiment with, then, cutting edge computer systems to maximise returns to the forest owner. These systems were best based in Log Yards, rather than in forests. The positive results saw KFL shift from forest harvesting to Log Yard management and log logistics.

We love what we do. But it is the way in which we do it that we are most proud. Zero bosses or managers. Just super committed workers working together.

We specialise in getting the most valuable combination of logs from a tree.

“Our Team here at Kajavala Forestry has been using Alcom Communications for the past 4 years as supplier for our Radio Communications.
