Bellatrix originally got its name from the sailboat that our founder, Drew Peerless, sailed as he solo circumnavigated the globe in the early 1990’s. Interestingly, Bellatrix is the third-brightest star in the constellation Orion and represents Orion’s left shoulder. In 2019, Bellatrix brought on Laurie Sapp as a partner. Laurie has 25 years of experience in business strategy, production efficiencies, sales, marketing and logistics. Laurie’s experience, along with her tenacity to get things done, have awarded her the top spot at Bellatrix Millworks, and in 2022, she was named President of Bellatrix Enterprises.
Bellatrix also symbolizes a “Female Warrior”, which Laurie does justice to now that she serves at the helm.
