Timber Company to Invest $90M for Manufacturing Plant in Conway, Arkansas

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. Conway is located near multiple transportation corridors, including Interstate 40, U.S. Routes 60 and 64 and Arkansas Highway 365. The Structurlam plant will produce mass timber building products and industrial matting products for the Southern, Central and Eastern United States, including providing building materials for Walmart’s new 350-acre Home Office campus in Bentonville.
