DonJon Shipbuilding, Repair on Lake Erie

Friday, December 18, 2009

Donjon Marine, Co., Inc., a global marine services provider based in N.J., announced the creation of Donjon Shipbuilding and Repair, LLC (DSR).  Through an agreement with the Erie-Western Pennsylvania Port Authority and the acquisition of the assets of the former Erie Shipbuilding, LLC, DSR will engage in shipbuilding and repair on its 44-acre site on Lake Erie, Pa.
 
The acquisition adds shipbuilding and repair to Donjon’s existing spectrum of marine services, including dredging, salvage, heavy lift and towing.  DSR’s facility, equipped with a 1,250-ft by 120-ft by 22-ft dry dock, is the largest shipyard of its kind on the Great Lakes.  The facility includes 4,000 ft of pier space and more than 200,000 sq ft of production area, with fully enclosed fabrication and assembly buildings housing fully automated cutting, fabrication and coating equipment sufficient to build and maintain everything from deck barges to ocean-going ships.
 
DSR presents the opportunity to build on the wealth of manufacturing expertise available in the Erie area.
