On December 20, 2023, the State Construction Control Office put into operation the new building of the ZAZA TIMBER Production SIA factory which produces glued laminated timber structures for buildings and bridges. The project was supported by the European Regional Development Fund.
The construction of the new annex of the factory started in May, 2023. The new annex is 65 meters long and 34 meters wide, the roof ridge is 12.76 meters high. The load-bearing structures were made of glued laminated timber.
The new factory wing will be used for installation of steel parts, surface treatment and finishing of glulam structures – effectively increasing company’s capacity in manufacturing custom-made pre-fabricated glulam structures. In recent years, along with the increase in export volume, the production volume has increased so the company sought to increase production space.
