XLam today announced it has begun manufacturing Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels at its Wodonga site in Australia.
“XLam is very excited to finally offer the building and construction industry a locally produced treated or non-treated CLT product”, said XLam CEO Gary Caulfield. “The opening of our state-of-the-art facility represents a significant milestone for our company and the industry. Congratulations and thanks to the entire project team on the delivery of the new ‘high-tech’ plant.”
Mr Caulfield noted that “lead-times for product from our New Zealand plant are currently at 16 weeks from the date of contract signing and upon receipt of suitable engineering and architectural details/drawings. We have made a commitment to the Australian market that the new plant will offer the same great service to our Australian customers.”
The XLam manufacturing plant represents a $30 million investment within the Logic industrial estate, a location choice supported by the City of Wodonga local council.
XLam’s business model includes design, manufacture and installation capacity to deliver comprehensive construction solutions for customers throughout the Asia Pacific region.
