Conrad Industries opens new facilityYard News // March 28, 2003
The company has moved its two largest drydocks to the facility and has begun work on its first deep draft vessel.
The new facility allows the company to handle vessels with deeper drafts than the before and therefore opens up a market niche from which it has historically been limited from participating.
"We have already received several inquiries relating to the opening of this facility and are excited about the opportunities this investment provides Conrad," said the company in a recent statement.
Conrad Industries designs, builds and overhauls tugboats, ferries, liftboats, barges, offshore support vessels and other steel and aluminum products for both the commercial and government markets. The company provides both repair and new construction services at its four shipyards located in southern Louisiana and Texas.
