Crailar Technologies will start up its first full-scale manufacturing plant on Dec. 17.

Crailar Technologies [formerly Naturally Advanced Technologies], which trades its stock in Canada and has a home office in Vancouver, B.C., has a co-headquarters in Portland where its executives are based. The company invested $8 million in the Pamplico, S.C. production facility.
