Corrigan OSB Establishes Polk County, Texas, Operations Complex

Corrigan OSB, a wholly owned Texas subsidiary of Martco, a wood-products manufacturing and timber-management company, will establish a new production facility in Polk County, Texas. The $211 million project is expected to create 50 new jobs.

"With this new OSB plant, we will be well positioned to meet the backlog of demand for quality building products, produced from renewable, sustainable resources abundant in our region," said E. Scott Poole, RoyOMartin President and COO. "Our growth in East Texas has given us an influx of talent with a tremendous work ethic, a long-term, sustainable, raw-material base, and access to a growing and vibrant residential market," explained Poole. "I could not be prouder to further expand our footprint in the great state of Texas," Poole stated. "We remain steadfast in investing in our people, our forestland, quality manufacturing, and our growing customer base."

A Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant of $278,000 has been extended to Corrigan OSB, which includes a $3,000 Veteran Created Job Bonus.

"Made in Texas is a powerful brand, and this new building products facility in East Texas is the latest example of the resurgence of the Lone Star State’s mighty economy," said Governor Greg Abbott. "Texas leads the nation as the best place to live, work, raise a family, and build a home. I thank Corrigan OSB for their expanded investment in Texas to meet the increasing demand for building materials and for creating even more jobs for hardworking Texans."
