Colle Towing Take Delivery of Marine Travelift

Monday, January 14, 2008
The family run business of Colle Towing Inc, who operate tugboats on the Pascagoula River, recently took delivery of its second Marine Travelift a new 600C boat hoist. The acquisition of the 600C machine means that Colle Towing will no longer have to operate a dry dock, which is much less efficient than the Marine Travelift operation. This is the second 600C boat hoist, which has been sold by Marine Travelift's dealer, H &E Equipment Services of Louisiana.

Colle Towing currently own eight tugboats and has been providing tugboat services on the Pascagoula River for almost 130 years. The company was founded in 1878 by John Colle's great-grandfather, Capt. H. Colle, and, five generations later, the family involvement is set to continue as Colle's two daughters, Natalie and Kimberly, work in the business. source: Mississippi Press
