New Texas OSB Mill Nears Start-Up

RoyOMartin has welcomed the first three loads of pine pulpwood at its new Corrigan, Tx., OSB plant.

Alexandria, La.-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 the 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, were unloaded and held in the site’s log yard to be used in operationalizing new wood-processing equipment and in training.
