On May 25, fire destroyed a building that housed Martek Corporation in Burlington.

But the fire didn’t stop Martek owner Gerald Marshall, who says he is still serving his customers. “We are working hard to keep our customers in product,” said Marshall, “even though the logistics are tough.”

The fire started around 3 p.m., in Burlington near Walker’s Line and Harvester Road. No one was injured in the blaze. Nine people work at Martek.

Marshall, a long-time member of LO, said that the fire left the structure in rubble. Martek leased the building. “I expect to be up and running normal with a new place by sometime in June,” said Marshall.

Martek began operations in 1990. The company ships throughout Canada, with its own fleet of vehicles for regional deliveries.
