Mass timber manufacturer Structurlam appointed Jason Trenn as the company’s vice president of manufacturing and operations for its new production facility in Conway, Ark. In the role, Trenn will be responsible for overseeing all manufacturing activities at the facility.

Trenn brings more than 20 years of experience to the company, and has previously worked for Canfor, Weldwood, West Fraser, and Tembec. Most recently, Trenn worked as the lumber manufacturing director for Weyerhaeuser in Greenville, N.C.

“Jason’s comprehensive background in lumber and engineered wood brings an incredible wealth of knowledge to our operations in Arkansa,” Hardy Wentzel, CEO of Structurlam, said in a news release. “At the start of his career, Jason actually once worked as a sawmill supervisor at our Okanagan Falls plant when it was previously owned by Weyehaesuer, and is well-versed in both our industry and community. His knowledge of working in B.C.’s ‘wood basket’ and experience with Southern Pine lumber in the Southern United States will be incredibly valuable to our team.”
