Bordelon Celebrates 35 Years in Marine Services

This year marks the 35th anniversary of Bordelon Marine. Established in 1979, the company said it has maintained a family-oriented culture and a positive presence in its community by continuing the long standing trust it has established with its vendors and employees alike. 

Wes Bordelon, the company’s current President and CEO, took the helm of Bordelon Marine in 1999 at the end of a cycle of the family business that had seen several periods of growth and decline. Beginning in 2000, Mr. Bordelon implemented a program that ultimately rebuilt the fleet of vessels though newbuilds and acquisitions while simultaneously diversifying and solidifying the company customer base.  

Bordelon Marine now operates a fleet of mini-supply vessels along with 260’ DP2 vessels.  Bordelon Marine started a purpose built shipyard in 2011 specifically to build the new deep water Stingray 260’ DP2 series vessels. Bordelon Marine currently has one Stingray in operation working as a Well Stimulation vessel for Baker Hughes along with two more Stingray vessels in production with expected delivery dates in Q4 2014 and Q3 2015.

Bordelon Marine plans to maintain its presence on the shelf while building its fleet of 260’ DP2 vessels to support the deep water markets of the Gulf of Mexico and internationally.

Wes Bordelon said, “I feel a great sense of pride as a second generational owner, to be a part of this great history and look forward to many more years of growth and success. The company began an exciting new chapter in its evolution three years ago, with the construction of Bordelon Marine Shipbuilders and the design and creation of our new deep-water Stingray 260 DP2 series vessels.  Since then we’ve delivered and placed under contract, the first of six vessels planned for construction with the next delivery later this year. We are excited and confident that the Stingray 260 DP2 series will support and foster the continued success of Bordelon Marine well into the future. Thank you all who have been a part of this company and its efforts through the years. A company is truly only as good as the collective talents and efforts of the people within the organization. Bordelon Marine is dedicated to excellence in all aspects of Marine Transportation and Shipbuilding. We will continue to act as a responsible steward to the community, our employees, and the environment in which will all live.”
