Timberlab hosts grand opening event

Timberlab, a nationwide provider of holistic mass timber systems, held the grand opening of its second glued laminated timber (glulam) fabrication facility in Greenville, South Carolina, on June 20. 

Timberlab's goal is to provide the Eastern United States with a more regional platform for sustainable, low-carbon building materials and accelerate the mainstream adoption of mass timber construction to benefit the planet and its people.

The newly renovated 75,000-square-foot East Coast facility began operations in April. Staffed by 30 manufacturing and timber professionals, the company said the facility is the largest of its kind planned in the region, increasing the regional capacity of the fabrication of large glulam members for mass timber structures. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art CNC machines and can produce timber to build an estimated one million square feet annually once at full capacity. Currently, there are only three facilities east of the Mississippi River capable of fabricating engineered wood products.
