Corrigan, Texas, plant to officially open later this year
Corrigan, TX – (September 26, 2017) – RoyOMartin announced today the first three loads of pine
pulpwood were received at the new Corrigan, Texas, oriented strand board (OSB) manufacturing plant of
its subsidiary, Corrigan OSB, L.L.C. Alexandria, Louisiana-based RoyOMartin currently owns and operates
two wood-products manufacturing facilities in Louisiana: a pine plywood plant in Chopin and an OSB plant
in Oakdale. Construction of the Corrigan facility began in 2015, and start-up is expected later this year.
The facility will employ approximately 165.
To mark its first log delivery, the plant held a celebratory gathering with employees and industry and
community partners. The logs, delivered by J&J Logging under the supervision of Walsh Timber Company,
L.L.C., will be unloaded and held in the site’s log yard to be used in operationalizing new wood-processing
equipment and in training. A versatile structural wood panel, OSB is commonly used in the construction
of residential and multifamily housing, as well as in a variety of other applications.
“We are excited to receive and unload our first three loads of pulpwood at Corrigan OSB, L.L.C.,” stated

many milestones on the path to running a world-class OSB facility later this year. Thanks to everyone for
making this happen safely.”
RoyOMartin Vice President of Land and Timber Cade Young added, “We have eagerly awaited this log
delivery and look forward to many more at the Corrigan site. We appreciate the relationships formed with
our raw-material suppliers and vendors, the Texas Forestry Association, and others throughout the region
who have welcomed us to Deep East Texas.”
