Wood Materials LLC

There is no job big or small where Wood Materials cannot offer solutions to your material needs.

In 1956, after completing his service in the U.S. Navy, Donald Wood joined his father in a partnership consisting of one towboat. From there, Donald built more boats, turned miles of river frontage into barge fleets, built New Orleans Shipyard, established Point Landing Fuel, a diesel distributorship, acquired sand pits and built a suction dredge named after his father, the M/V “W.B. Wood”.

Donald’s three children, Sarah Louise Ham, Donald Wood, Jr. and Pearce Wood joined their father in the 1980’s and added sand pits, expanded the range of construction materials for sale, installed ship mooring facilities and added the capability to perform maintenance dredging.

Included in the expansion of construction materials was the creation of Wood Materials LLC that was charged with the daily operations of the Hahnville, Westwego, Algiers and Harahan locations. We are proud to offer a full range of products such as river sand, aggregates, mulch and soil to both commercial and residential customers.

The Wood family along with our team of dedicated and skilled employees remains committed to customer satisfaction by providing our customers the highest quality of materials and services for the greatest value along the Mississippi River.
