Bridge Gaps
A must read for Virginia job seekers
Posted on: 07-14-2021 by Floor Covering Media


Looking for work? A supplier of hardwood flooring will be creating 58 new jobs in Patrick County, Virginia. Which supplier? Canadian-based Prolam LLC; the company plans to invest over twelve million dollars in Patrick County for the purpose of establishing its first manufacturing operation. Where? Remember the former Ten Oaks satellite facility on Dobyns Road?


This project should add 50 percent to the company’s total manufacturing capacity. Prolam will source ~ 65 percent of its timber from the Commonwealth’s robust hardwood resource, which will support regional loggers and forestland owners. How so? Through the purchase of over twenty million dollars in Virginia-grown hardwoods. The time frame? Three years!


Forestry is one of the pillars of its community across the Commonwealth. Virginia's abundance of natural resources, transportation network and workforce makes it an ideal place for Prolam's first manufacturing facility in Southern Virginia.


Prolam is a leading producer of commercial trailer flooring headquartered in Quebec, Canada. The company supplies the top U.S. trailer manufacturers who are experiencing record growth from the surge in online commerce and the associated increase in shipping. Prolam’s new facility in Patrick County will directly benefit Virginia’s hardwood loggers and forestland owners by providing a market for lower grade red and white oak lumber not suited for residential flooring or cooperages.




The company employs a number of proprietary technologies that offer superior moisture resistance, strength, and durability while not sacrificing commercial trailer weight. Demand for Virginia hardwoods created by facilities like Prolam’s create the conditions essential for sustainable forest management. The Commonwealth is partnering with Patrick County through the AFID Program on this project.
