Omega Construction begins work on NAT Flax Fiber Processing Facility in Pamplico, SC

September 19, 2012, 2:08 pm

Omega Construction of Pilot Mountain has been awarded a contract and work has begun on a flax fiber processing facility in Pamplico, SC.  The project is being constructed for Naturally Advanced Technologies (NAT).  NAT will produce its proprietary and natural CRAiLAR flax fiber at the facility.  Construction will include the re-use and renovation of an existing 143,500 sf manufacturing facility on Old River Road.   The proprietary CRAiLAR process is the first to remove the binding agents from flax that contribute to its stiff texture by bathing it in a proprietary enzyme wash.  The result is a textile fiber that merges the strength and durability of flax with the most desirable attributes of cotton.

Project Manager for the NAT project will be Brock Hennings, PE.  Brock has 7 years experience in the construction industry and 13 years as an Electrical Engineer with Duke Energy in Charlotte, NC.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from NC State University.  Brock is a LEED Accredited Professional and is a member of the Triad Chapter of the US Green Building Council.  Brock's project experience includes RTI International Metals, Swedwood, Harris Teeter Perishable Distribution Center expansion, CK Technologies and the KordSA USA Tire Cord facility.  The CK Technologies facility was the first LEED certified industrial facility in North Carolina.
