As the RoMa Craft Tobac celebrates its fifth anniversary this year, the company has announced that it has moved into its new global headquarters in Austin, Texas.

The 4,000-square-foot facility will house the company’s warehouse and packing operations, as well as a lounge, exhibition humidor, craft beer bar and offices for co-owners Michael Rosales and Skip Martin, who told halfwheel that the new space represents a significant milestone in the plan the pair laid out when their CroMagnon line began shipping five years ago.

“This year, we will reach our goal of manufacturing, importing, selling and distributing a little over one million cigars,” said Martin. “The working side of this new facility will enable us to more efficiently receive, store and distribute this volume. We also incorporated spaces that will enable us to showcase our brand. Our plan is to complete this side of the facility in time to host our annual CroMagnon Culture event in June 2016.”

While the facility isn’t open to walk-in visitors, Marin does invite all of the company’s retail partners to visit by appointment. He has also posted a number of pictures of the facility’s construction and finished areas to his Instagram account.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
