Rosboro, North America’s largest producer of glue-laminated timber, is investing over $100M in new production infrastructure at its Springfield manufacturing campus, the company announced on Monday.
“These investments (will) build on the legacy of success that Rosboro has forged since our first sawmill began operating in Springfield in 1939,” said Rich Babcock, Rosboro CEO.
The investment will include a technologically advanced glue-laminated timber manufacturing plant capable of producing 70 million board feet annually, and upgrades to all phases of production geared toward improving raw material utilization and production efficiencies.
The announced projects will expand the capacity and fl exibility of Rosboro’s vertically integrated production process, which converts logs into finished glulam beams and columns for residential and commercial construction.
Construction will be completed in several phases, and the company expects the full investment to be operational in 2026. Once operational, the new facilities will employ up to 100 people.
