Companies to invest $92 million in Alabama Wiregrass growth projects

DOTHAN, Alabama — Houston County officials say infrastructure improvements will allow two growing businesses to make new capital investments totaling a combined $92 million in Dothan as part of projects that will create at least 70 jobs and provide a boost to the region’s forestry industry.

SmartLam North America, a maker of cross laminated timber (CLT) products at a factory in Dothan, will invest $62 million to build a new glulam manufacturing facility that will produce large beams and columns for the construction industry. The project will create 43 jobs.

Meanwhile, Peak Renewables will build a wood pellet production facility that will utilize sawmill residuals to make pellets used in renewable power generation. The $30 million project will generate 26 jobs at the facility in Dothan.

“The forest products industry has long been a central pillar for Alabama’s economy, and its vitality is attracting significant levels of new investment and driving job growth across the state,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
