N a t i o n a l M a r i n e Shipyard Division To O p e n N ew Gulf Coast Facilities
The Shipyard Division, National Marine Service Incorporated, will open a new division location, E.E. Ahlemeyer, president of the division has announced.
The new facility will be in the New Orleans, La., area on the Harvey Canal. Located at 540 Destrehan Avenue in Harvey, the Gulf Coast branch will specialize in parts and service for General Motors EMD diesel engines.
The new unit will also provide 24-hour repair service, complete diesel engine overhaul and repairs, block welding, line boring and a large EMD parts inventory.
The Harvey location was selected to facilitate service to the marine, industrial and offshore industries in the Gulf Coast and South Atlantic states.
National Marine pioneered rapid overhaul of diesel engines, and routinely provides overhaul of higher horsepower diesels in as little as 48 hours.
The company maintains a "go-anywhere" policy to provide quick on-site repair of downed diesel engines, and regularly sends its repair crews to points throughout the world.
The Shipyard Division's central facility is located at Hartford, 111., just above the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers, and provides extensive drydocking, repair and cleaning services to marine and industrial customers, in addition to its diesel service.
National Marine Service, a subsidiary of NICOR Inc., is headquartered at 1750 Brentwood Boulevard in St. Louis, Mo.
