The strongest trunks of Lignator sprouted already in the last century. The entrepreneurial core team of Lignator that met in 1995 to start cooperation consisted of knowledge about wood, export experiences and commitment.

We have today become a ripe and experienced timber company, who has helped export hundreds of local loggers and wood companies products.  


A quarter of a hundred years of wood wisdom has made us a company you can always turn to if you need advice buying, selling or broking wood products. Or even if you have a new and interesting idea and need partner or adviser to help you!


Ulvar Kaubi, RMK Head of Timber Marketing Department of RMK

As a result of active and determined activities, Lignator who is based only on domestic capital, has become one of  RMK’s  ten largest timber buyers.

They have succeeded in intense international competition for many years  and the company is really worthy of its name.

Darren Weightman, Capital Hardwood & Components Ltd Director

I have dealt with Lignator Timber Ltd for many years now mainly through Kätlin Sütiste and her excellent team of staff.I have always found this company to be accurate with their information whilst being diligent and discreet in their dealings with Capital Hardwoods and Components Ltd.Lignator`s products are always of a high standard whilst being competitively priced. In my opinion Lignator are a credit to the industry and a totally trustworthy company. An absolute pleasure to deal with and long may our trading relationship last.

Neville Greenwood, KDM Manager

We have been doing business with Lignator Timber for around 10 years and it’s feels more like a partnership rather than a normal supplier/customer relationship.
Katlin and her team run a very professional business, buying pallet, birch and other timber products from a variety of loyal and good quality sawmills, which they have very close relationships with.
KDM’s business is all about providing our customer with the quality of product they require, at a competitive price with a regular on-going supply, this is exactly what we get from Lignator Timber.
