Former owners Lloyd Burris and Ray Coats will continue to lead the Infinity Marine Offshore division of US Joiner.  US Joiner will operate its Southwest division from Infinity's Houston office and the division will be run by Mr. Burris and Mr. Coats – Mr. Burris has been named General Manager of US Joiner Southwest and Mr. Coats has been named Division Manager of US Joiner Southwest.  Mr. Burris stated, "By aligning our company with US Joiner, the Infinity business can continue to expand and improve our service to the oil and gas market.  The combined operations of our two companies offer a diverse, high quality joiner solution to our customers. Ray and I are excited for our people to join the US Joiner family."
