Structurlam Temporarily Suspends Arkansas Operations

 

Structurlam Mass Timber Corp., a mass timber manufacturer in North America, has announced it is temporarily suspending operations and reducing staff at its Conway, Ark., plant due to a customer contract cancellation.

Matthew Karmel, CEO of Structurlam Mass Timber Corp. has explained in a statement that since the company is no longer constrained by its exclusive production agreement, it now has the ability to support new customers with more than 1 million cubic feet annually of glulam and CLT mass-timber products.

“To put this into context, the state-of-the-art Conway plant has a capacity sufficient to construct a 200,000 sq. ft. office building every two months,” he adds. “We continue to work diligently to identify new solutions for putting this facility to good use, as it represents an important step in our North American growth strategy. We appreciate the support of the Conway community and state and regional business partners, and we look forward to continuing to remain a vibrant part of this growing economy.”

Plant Manager Jody Doak comments, “We are grateful for the contributions and hard work of the Conway employees and we anticipate the prospect of welcoming them back with new customer projects.”
