Beam-ing with pride over new plant

Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

Florida-based In­ter­na­tional Beams, a man­u­fac­turer of high qual­ity, pre-fab­ri­cated i-joist beams, is con­vert­ing a Gen­eral Elec­tric 227,000-square-foot build­ing into a highly spe­cial­ized man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity. The plant will be the big­gest cross-lam­i­nated tim­ber man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity in the U.S. when it opens in early 2018. The $19.6 mil­lion ex­pan­sion will cre­ate 60 jobs at the plant right away, and cre­ate other jobs in lo­cal tim­ber, sawmill, and truck­ing. Two hun­dred jobs will be cre­ated al­to­gether.
