In a significant move that underscores the growing demand for sustainable construction materials, a prominent mass timber company from the Lower Mainland has announced plans to establish a new manufacturing plant in the Interior.

Omnitek, known for its innovative approach to construction and commitment to eco-friendly practices, sees the Interior as a strategic location to expand its operations. The decision comes at a time when the construction industry is rapidly shifting towards greener alternatives, and mass timber is emerging as a preferred choice for many developers.

The new facility in the Interior is expected to tap into the region’s abundant timber resources, ensuring a steady supply of raw materials for production. This move will not only bolster Omnitek’s production capabilities but also contribute significantly to the local economy by creating job opportunities and fostering business partnerships.

Local stakeholders have welcomed the announcement, anticipating the positive ripple effects it will have on the community. The establishment of the plant is seen as a win-win, aligning with the region’s goals of sustainable development while also catering to the growing market demand for mass timber products.

Omnitek’s expansion is a testament to the company’s vision of leading the way in sustainable construction and its belief in the potential of the Interior as a hub for mass timber production.
