RoyOMartin Hosts 100 Year Celebration

On November 10 RoyOMartin celebrated the founding of Roy O. Martin Lumber Co., which was legally organized and incorporated in Alexandria, La. in 1923. Led by Indiana native Roy O. Martin, Sr., the company was started after the entrepreneur’s purchase of an older sawmill and began without a single acre of land. Today, the trade name RoyOMartin represents a group of vertically integrated companies owned by the Martin family, focused on sustainable land and timber management and wood product manufacturing businesses.

“For 100 years, the Martin family has built a business model demonstrating corporate responsibility benefiting its shareholders, stakeholders, team members and our families,” states Roy O. Martin III, grandson of Martin Sr., who oversees the company’s operations as Chairman, CEO, and Chief Financial Officer.
