CONWAY, ARK. — Structurlam Mass Timber Corp., a British Columbia-based mass timber manufacturer, has unveiled plans for a plant in Conway, approximately 30 miles from Little Rock. The mass timber manufacturer will spend $90 million to purchase, retrofit and equip a former steel plant. Set to open in mid-2021, the plant will create 130 new jobs and will source lumber from nearby Arkansas forestland.
