Martco Limited Partnership, the manufacturing arm of Roy O. Martin Co. has built a new OSB plant in Oakdale, Louisiana. At full production capacity, the OSB plant will utilize about 1.7 million tons/year of small diameter pine pulpwood and produce 850 MMSF/ year (3/8 inch basis) of OSB board. The plant will employ 140 hourly and 30 salaried personnel. This is Martco's second OSB plant. The design specified that a press pit would be constructed, requiring 23,000 square feet of below grade wall. The original design was value engineered from a perforated pipe and stone perimeter drain to prefabricated sheet and combination drains. AMERDRAIN 500 and AMERDRAIN TOTAL-DRAIN products were installed, providing a more cost effective and effiecient drainage system that reduced material and labor costs.
