Katerra, a company that produces innovative cross-laminated timber (CLT) products, has completed construction of a 250,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in the northeast industrial area in Spokane Valley.

The company announced in July that it had passed a critical milestone - successful completion of product testing for first project use. Initial products to be manufactured at the plant will include 5-layer and 3-layer CLT panels for flooring; 7-layer and 9-layer panels for walls will come later. 

The facility occupies 29 acres of a 52-acre industrial site with easy access to transportation corridors via rail and Interstate 90. Construction of the factory generated more than 150 jobs. The facility will employ about 125 once operational. 

Mass timber is considered an emerging new wood product in the US. Through an end-to-end construction services model, Katerra plans to supply much of the CLT to projects where it will also serve as both architect and contractor. Learn more about the factory.

Two projects in Spokane Valley currently using Katerra materials are Pine Valley Ranch Phase 2 and River House apartment communities. In addition, the company is supplying CLT to the construction of the Catalyst Building in Spokane and a new hospitality center in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
