SSG – Standardised services for a safer, more efficient, more sustainable Swedish industry

SSG – Standard Solutions Group (Skogsindustriella Standardiseringsgruppen) – offers standardized services for the Swedish industry. SSG has been working for more than 60 years to make Swedish industry safer, more productive, more sustainable and more competitive.

Many different sectors and industries face the same challenges; challenges requiring the development of standardised work approaches, solutions and methods. Instead of each company investing resources in creating their own solutions, SSG offers standardised services, standards and courses for their use.

SSG is jointly owned by the six largest forest industry conglomerates in Sweden: BillerudKorsnäs, Holmen, Metsä Board, SCA, Stora Enso and Södra. Participating companies in SSG are from several different industries, e.g. automotive industry, byggindustri, process industry, saw mill and timber industry and steel industry.

Surface Protection Committee

SSG runs committees in several different areas where participants have the opportunity to meet others and together develop standardised solutions. The Surface Treatment Committee is responsible for standardisation and research in the field of surface protection.

The SSG Surface Protection Committee monitors situations and works to distribute experience in respect of surface protection, as well as working constantly to keep the documentation up to date and ensuring that new standards and aids are developed in the field.

The committee comprises representatives from industry, international paint suppliers, contractors and technical specialists in this area. The committee works to distribute information and knowledge of the importance of choosing the right surface protection, and also to increase awareness of how SSG standards can simplify and improve work.
