LEESBURG, Va. – Nordic Structures, headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, has joined the American Wood Council (AWC).
The company is dedicated to engineered wood products for the construction industry, with over 50 years of experience in the industry. Nordic Structures manufactures cross-laminated timber (CLT), glued-laminated timber (glulam) and I-joists.
”Mass timber technologies have sparked considerable innovation in building construction,” AWC President and CEO Robert Glowinski said. “All wood product manufacturers make products from a renewable resource that absorbs and sequesters carbon. The products Nordic Structures manufacture are part of a movement to transform our skylines, as many cities in Europe and Canada are already doing and are now planned for the U.S. We are excited to have Nordic Structures join over 50 other wood products companies supporting AWC’s efforts on behalf of wood products manufacturers.”
The American Wood Council (AWC) is the voice of North American wood products manufacturing, representing over 75 percent of an industry that provides approximately 400,000 men and women in the United States with family-wage jobs. AWC members make products that are essential to everyday life from a renewable resource that absorbs and sequesters carbon. Staff experts develop state-of-the-art engineering data, technology, and standards for wood products to assure their safe and efficient design, as well as provide information on wood design, green building, and environmental regulations. AWC also advocates for balanced government policies that affect wood products.
