ROATÁN, Honduras.- A high-tech wood workshop planned within Roatan Próspera development will use sustainable harvested timber from mainland Honduras and local workforce from the island to supply local construction projects.
Circular Factory will be a manufacturing facility focused on sustainable, low-impact production of high-end timber products for local construction and architectural projects. This new facility is a partnership between Circular Factory company and Honduras Próspera Inc.
“We’re tremendously excited to bring this project to Roatan. It will offer on-site and near-site digital fabrication capabilities for the construction industry”, said Circular Factory CEO, Dr Alicia Nahmad. “Both Circular Factory and Próspera believe in win-win development that is sustainable, provides jobs to the local communities, and creates long-term value. This new facility will use cutting edge digital fabrication technologies that bring local construction into the 21st century”, Dr Nahmad emphasized.
Gabriel Delgado, Chief Development Officer for Honduras Próspera Inc, said that such a specialized “digital carpentry” factory would be able to create international-standard products made in Honduras. “Projects like this contribute to our vision of creating the best place to live and do business in Central America”, he added.
The factory will take six months to build and construction will generate approximately 300 direct and indirect jobs. Production is expected to start in February 2022.
