Joe Mullen, President of US Joiner, said, "On behalf of all of our employees, I am extremely pleased to formally welcome the outstanding management and employees of Infinity to the US Joiner family. The addition of Infinity's capabilities and customer relationships in the offshore oil and gas market fits perfectly with our strategy to expand our joiner capabilities in this large and growing segment of the industry."

 

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."

 

US Joiner was acquired in June 2011 by J.F. Lehman & Company, a middle-market private equity firm focused on the maritime, defense, and aerospace sectors. Blank Rome LLP and Feil, Pettit & Williams, PLC provided legal counsel to US Joiner.
