MÄRK LUMBER’s founder, Marc Bourgeois, played baseball since the age of four. Having played for some of the best Colleges in the US and professionally for the Arizona Diamondbacks minor league organization, he brings a wealth of experience. While being known for his relentless work ethic and his leadership, both his College and Professional careers were highlighted by his ability to drive the ball with power.
His passion for hitting combined with his unparalleled determination made him want to learn everything he could about swing mechanics. And he didn’t stop there. Having experience logging since he was a young boy and being intrigued by woodworking, turning bats seemed like a natural progression for Marc.
Although the company name is based off Marc himself, Marc believes that the cornerstone of this company is his wife, Roxann. From graphic design to event planning and marketing, she brings that sharp, final touch that has taken MÄRK LUMBER to another level. She might not have been a professional ball player herself, but rest assured, she has watched her share of games through her husband’s long career. She can talk Lumber with the best of us!
Through MÄRK LUMBER, Marc pursues the same goal he had as a ball player not long ago: to make it to the Show. For him, manufacturing top quality bats isn’t a hobby, it’s a lifestyle.
