New majority owners since summer 2008 are Göran Johansson and Tom Olander via JOOL Invest AB. In December 2011, JOOL Invest AB acquired the remaining 30% and is thus the sole owner. In 2018, Jool Invest AB acquired a majority share of Tibro Såg AB. The sawmill works in synergy with Ess-Enn Timber AB.
