Over the course of the presentation, participants will review the evolution of glulam manufacturing and gain an understanding of the versatility offered through 24F-V4 glulam manufactured in framing widths and IJC compatible depth as a means to expand the available options designers have from the EWP product category. Further, participants will be asked to re-evaluate how they define “value engineering” along with where and when they specify custom vs. stock glulam, based on versatility, cost, manufacturing lead time and availability.
Our story begins in 1890, when Thomas “Whit” Whitaker Rosborough started running his own sawmill. Sixteen years later, Whit Rosborough formed the Caddo River Lumber Company in the aptly-named Rosboro, Arkansas. In 1939, his team migrated to Springfield, Oregon, and opened Rosboro’s first sawmill. Rosboro’s first glulam plant opened in 1963. It was the first in the industry to use several key innovations: ~ Radio frequency beam curing equipment to shorten the processing time, enabling Rosboro to offer glulam as a cost-effective alternative to other floor and roof framing options. ~A continuous pre-glued finger joint allows Rosboro to make long length lamination's. ~ Stress wave machine-graded lumber, which creates stronger and more consistent glulam. Since then, Rosboro has continued its commitment to “Building Better” by using comprehensive information technology services to help create a top-notch customer service experience.
