R. W. Martin Opens New Headquarters
(November, 2019) R.W. Martin Company of Kent, OH, is completing the final phase of its transition to a new headquarters earlier than expected. The strategic move to the Carmen Industrial Park, located in Tallmadge, Ohio, stems from the company’s unprecedented growth in the last five years and underscores its commitment to remaining in Portage County.
The company will now operate solely out of its new 34,000 square foot, state-of-the-art re-manufacturing facility constructed in 2018, with the corporate office scheduled for completion in November 2019. The 6,200 square foot office expansion, originally slated for 2020-21, was fast-tracked to accommodate the company’s growing sales, marketing and customer service operations.
“The efficiencies gained by having our shop, parts, sales and administrative teams together is another piece of the new business model that ensures R.W. Martin’s growth going forward,” said Chip Ottman, company president. “Today’s markets demand quick information and faster order turn-around. The centralized operation concept was implemented with those demands in mind.”
