Production has begun at Corrigan OSB, L.L.C., the Texas subsidiary of RoyOMartin, Alexandria, La.
The Corrigan facility is situated on 158 acres and has brought 165 direct jobs and more than 470 indirect jobs to east Texas.
Construction of the greenfield plant in Corrigan began in July 2015, and, at full capacity, it will ship enough product by road and rail to supply OSB for approximately 70,000 U.S. homes per year.
The new oriented strand board manufacturing facility was celebrated on May 30 with a grand-opening ceremony. Dignitaries, community partners, and others from across the region gathered to hear remarks from company leaders and take a guided plant tour.
