XLAM Cross Laminated Timber Plant
XLAM Cross Laminated Timber Plant

The first cross laminated timber manufacturing plant in Australia was opened in Wodonga in 2018.

Xlam’s Cross Laminated (CLT) plant is part of a new wave of prebuild construction technologies and is produced from timber, a renewable and sustainable material. CLT is mainly manufactured as large-format structureal building elements, including walls, floors and roofs, created by bonding together time boards in orthogonal layers.

The facility is located in the Logic industrial estate north of Melbourne, allowing XLam to deliver product to 80% of Australia within 24 hours.

The factory was supported by the Australian government, securing a AU$2.5 million grant from the Commonwealth Government Next Generation Australian Industry Grants, and a AU$450,000 grant from the Victorian Regional Development authority to support job development. 54 local jobs have been created through the new facility, including 30 direct and 24 indirect.
