RoyOMartin is the result of a vision set in motion generations ago. Beginning in 1923 with a six-foot "groundhog" band saw and a serious commitment to provide customers with service and quality, RoyOMartin was on its way to becoming what is now one of the largest independently owned lumber companies in the South.
From the beginning, one of the key factors to the long-term success of the company has been the acquisition of tracts of timberland. Today, RoyOMartin has a land base of 570,000 acres of prime southern pine and fine hardwoods throughout Louisiana, made up of tracts from 20 acres to over 10,000 acres in size. With sound high-yield forestry programs started back in the 1950s, RoyOMartin continues to take special pride in timber as a uniquely renewable resource. Systematic research, planting, thinning and harvesting allows the company to rebuild the forests better and faster than before and gives the satisfaction of putting back more into nature than was removed. RoyOMartin’s family-owned forestlands have been certified as well-managed according to the principles and criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®), an independent, non-profit conservation organization.
RoyOMartin currently operates these manufacturing facilities:
All of RoyOMartin’s wood products are available FSC® certified. For more information on our variety of quality wood products, visit products.royomartin.com.
In addition to the manufacturing facilities listed above, Perforex Forest Services falls under the Martin Companies umbrella. Formed in 2003, PFS’s technology-driven harvest and haul operations yield more than 250,000 tons of forest products a year. Visit perforexforest.com to learn more.
Today, just as it was in 1923 with our first sawmill, RoyOMartin’s commitment to customer satisfaction and a quality product is at the core of every operation.
