(Wood Towing LLC, Wood Marine Corporation, Wood Marine Corp LA)
The Wood Resources Team was built from a single towboat. In 1956, Donald Wood, Sr. joined his father in a partnership after completing his service in the United States Navy. Wood built more boats and then turned miles of river frontage into barge fleets. Then, he built the New Orleans Shipyard and established Point Landing fuel along with a diesel distributorship. Next, he acquired sand pits and built a suction dredge named for his father called the M/V “W.B. Wood.”
Donald Wood Sr.’s three children, Sarah Louise Wood Ham, Donald Wood, Jr. and Pearce Wood joined their father in the 1980’s. They worked together and added sand pits, expanded the range of construction materials for sale, installed ship mooring facilities and added the capability to perform maintenance dredging. The Wood family along with the entire Wood Resources Team of dedicated and skilled employees are committed to customer satisfaction.
