The Southeastern New England Shipbuilding Corporation (SENESCO) has capped years of progress and strong growth with a change in name and investment in the future. The company formally changed its name to Senesco Marine, and to prove that the metamorphosis is much more than skin-deep, has instituted a sweeping new design and build process to enhance the speed with which the company can design, build and deliver barges. New CEO Gary C. Schuler said "Our most recent double hulled barge was built for a west coast customer and we continue to see increased activity out of our New Orleans office. The change to Senesco Marine makes sense for us based on our growing reputation as a leading national shipbuilder." Schuler touted the company's new partnership with Guarino & Cox, a respected naval architecture firms. "We realize that expedited construction and on time delivery have become increasingly important as our customers move to comply with federal requirements for double hulled barges," said Schuler. "On time delivery starts with quality ship designs and we're pleased to have Guarino & Cox as strategic design partners. Not only is Guarino & Cox providing us with top notch designs, but they're designing to maximize efficiency and speed up construction time based on the operation of our shipyard." Greg Cox, a principal in Guarino & Cox, said he was pleased to be working with Senesco Marine on the design of the company's double-hulled barges
