The small town of Darrington Washington, is soon to be home to the Darrington Wood Innovation Center. The Center will house and attract new wood fiber-based innovation and manufacturing companies. Situated on a 100-acre plot the Center will include companies building or manufacturing mass timber, cross laminated timber (CLT) and module housing. The State of Washington has provided Darrington with a $2 million grant to get the project underway. Groundbreaking is anticipated in 2021. Darrington Mayor Dan Rankin said, “We define ourselves by what we do, and Darrington has been involved in the timber and wood industry for close to a century. By bringing mass timber and CLT production to Darrington, the new Center will continue to make possible a livelihood that allows folks to live, work and play in this incredible place we call home.”
