RoyOMartin is adding a new production line for Eclipse OSB Radiant Barrier at its Corrigan, Tx., facility.

“As always, RoyOMartin strives to be on the cutting edge, increasing production to meet the growing demand of our products,” said Bobby Byrd, director of sales. “We recognize homebuilders value our Eclipse product, and we are working around the clock to meet the increased demand driven by building code changes and increasing housing starts in markets that utilize radiant barrier roof decks.”

In the next few months, the completed production line will double the output of Eclipse OSB Radiant Barrier when running at full capacity. The new line is manufactured by Globe Machine Manufacturing Co. and equipped with a Black Brothers laminating station.

“Eclipse has been an important value-added product for RoyOMartin since it was first introduced in 2003 at our Lemoyen mill,” shared executive VP Terry Secrest. “We have grown our capabilities over the past 18 years with efficiency improvements on the original machine, but in 2019 we realized the market was outgrowing our ability to produce enough radiant barrier. Our new Corrigan OSB LLC facility was the perfect location to add production capacity.”
