Kalesnikoff Mass Timber announced it will build a $34 million mass timber facility in West Kootenays, British Columbia. It will create up to 90 jobs.

New and expanded products and services will include modular construction, prefabricated mass timber and light frame components, and custom installation-ready products. It will also increase Kalensnikoff’s glue laminated timber capacity.

“We have experienced consistently strong interest and demand,” says Chris Kalesnikoff, Chief Operating Officer of Kalesnikoff Mass Timber. “This additional offering of leading mass timber products and services for the North American construction industry will support mass timber buildings including student and workforce housing, prefabricated housing and other mass timber projects.”

Kalesnikoff’s initial Mass Timber facility, located in South Slocan, launched in 2019 with 60 jobs and now employs 160. The existing Kalesnikoff sawmill in Thrums will provide a continuous and secure local fiber supply.

Kalesnikoff is a fourth-generation, family-owned, West Kootenay based company founded 85 years ago.
