The second cross-laminated timber (CLT) producer to join AWC, D.R. Johnson Wood Innovations is also the first U.S. company to receive APA/ANSI certification to manufacture structural CLT panels. The company, previously known as Riddle Laminators, has also manufactured glued-laminated beams since 1967.

D.R. Johnson Lumber Company, founded in 1951, specializes in the manufacture of 3" and 6" Douglas Fir. Primary products are 3x6 & wider, #1 and #2 structural joists and planks, 6x6 through 6x12 posts, beams and timbers.

”AWC is committed to not only what is permissible using wood, but also to what is possible using wood,” AWC President and CEO Robert Glowinski said. “Advancing the use of traditional and innovative wood products, such as CLT, makes use of a carbon-sequestering materials in the U.S. construction industry. D.R. Johnson is a company that demonstrates our same commitment and we are excited to have them join over 50 other wood products companies supporting our work on behalf of wood products manufacturers.”
