Columbia Lake Technology Center offers proficiency in a variety of areas, from rural development to artificial intelligence to project management and oversight. Our expert skillset, technological innovation, and business opportunities set us apart and have us working at the cutting edge of our field.

Key members of the technology hub are PodTech and BID Group. Our catalyst company, PodTech designs, builds, and operates world class datacenters. Moving quickly to get going, PodTech converted a log sorter building from the existing sawmill infrastructure into a classy pod factory within six months of opening. BID Group, an automated sawmill company, is a North American leader in the Industrial Internet of Things. BID Group has joined CLTC with a manufacturing facility. So far, in the first six months, we have created over seventy jobs at the CLTC site!
