New large scale glulam manufacturing facility

SmartLam North America, which is the first US manufacturer and largest manufacturer in North America of cross laminated timber (CLT), announced they will build a large scale glulam manufacturing facility in Dothan, AL. At Ledinek, we are proud to be chosen as a supplier in this important project and are already looking forward to it.

For SmartLams new GLT plant we will deliver our high performance finger jointing machine Kontizink, the revolutionary edge glue press Z-Press, for GLT up to 14in one Rotopress 60 ft and the new  Flexipress Column for Splitbeam with staggered lamination placement.

SmartLam North America CEO Derek Ratchford:

“We were looking for a turnkey project provided by a global industry leader in automated glulam beam and column manufacturing. After researching our options, we identified Ledinek best fit our scope. Our experience tells us that Ledinek designs and builds high quality equipment that is over designed and produces the high press pressures required to successfully laminate southern pine.”
