About C.L. Martin

Specialists in leasing and moving modular buildings since 1966


We offer a turn-key lease and delivery package on re-locatable buildings for use as classrooms, offices or storage rooms for school boards, private schools, businesses or individuals.


Our very early days in the construction industry gave us the background to be leaders in innovation, efficiency and competency in the modular building industry.  In 1946, C.L. Martin started a small construction business in Floradale, Ontario.  Business grew quickly and soon partners were involved.  Over the years, C.L. Martin Construction built numerous large commercial buildings close to home and stretching across southern Ontario.


Several years after incorporating in 1960, C.L., as he was known, felt that the future lay in the portable structure business.  In 1966, the first six modular buildings were constructed and leased out.  In 1975, the switch was made from construction to leasing and moving modular buildings. 


Today, under second and third generation ownership of the Bauman family, the supply of modular buildings for lease has grown to over 700 buildings.
