Wright-Martin was a short-lived aircraft manufacturing business venture between the Wright Company (after Orville Wright sold the Wright Company and divested himself from it) and Glenn L. Martin.

Company officials merged their respective organizations, the Wright Company and the Glenn L. Martin Company, in 1916. Martin soon resigned, dissolving the arrangement within a year. The company was renamed Wright Aeronautical in 1919.
