Glulam and CLT presses to Kalesnikoff, Canada
With a $35 million project to create an advanced, fully integrated, multi-species mass timber manufacturing facility Kalesnikoff has set the bar for innovative sawmills.
For 81 years, Kalesnikoff has successfully practiced sustainable forest management and operated a sawmill in British Columbia, Canada. The company has taken a further step in preparing for the future and expands the company’s activities with CLT and glulam production.
With an intensive research process to ensure world-class equipment they have selected Kallesoe Machinery. Together with Kalesnikoff, we have custom designed the system solution they need to achieve their goals of producing “sustainable, stunning and energy-efficient buildings”.
Step by step
Kallesoe Machinery has delivered – and will be delivering – the center pieces in the massive production facility:
Step 1: The glulam production line installed in September 2019 at the mass timber manufacturing facility in South Slocan.
Step 2: Handling equipment for the finishing of the glulam beams which completes the automatic glulam production line is being installed March 2020.
Step 3: Right now the CLT press production line is on its way to Canada, ready to be installed early this fall.
