“We made the decision to come to Maine for several reasons,” said Nick Holgorsen, CEO and co-founding partner of LignaTerra Global, LLC, based in Charlotte, North Carolina. “First, the types of trees that are important to the cross laminated timber production process are plentiful here in Maine.

“Second, we know that Maine has a dedicated, productive workforce with timber industry experience. We see this as an opportunity to provide jobs and help communities thrive.”
