Williams Lake could soon witness a significant boost in its local economy and employment opportunities. Omnitek, a leading mass timber and modular building manufacturer, has shown keen interest in the former Jackpine Forests Product site in the region. The move is seen as a strategic step to expand the company’s operations and tap into the potential of the area’s rich timber resources.

The former Jackpine Forests Product site, which has been dormant for some time, presents an ideal location for Omnitek. Its proximity to abundant timber resources and the existing infrastructure makes it a prime spot for setting up a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

Local authorities and community leaders have expressed their enthusiasm about the potential development. The establishment of a new manufacturing unit could lead to job creation and stimulate economic growth in the region. Moreover, with Omnitek’s focus on sustainable and eco-friendly construction methods, the move aligns well with the community’s vision for a greener future.

The mass timber industry has been gaining traction globally due to its environmental benefits and innovative construction techniques. Omnitek’s potential expansion into Williams Lake is a testament to the growing demand for sustainable building materials and the company’s commitment to leading the way in this sector.
