A History of Experience and Value
The company was started by the current president’s father, George Poole, in 1978 as MAR Corporation. Mar Corp did weighing and sampling of commodities ion the piers of Norfolk, VA. They used the warehouse to do reconditioning of any damaged product found during inspections. The commodities were mostly rubber and cocoa, which are still handled by US Port Services today. In the mid 80”s we began to handle “thawed” rubber that had been stockpiled by the US government during WWII.
