Tuesday, July 13, 2010

 J.F. Lehman & Company completed the sale of Atlantic Marine Holding Company to a subsidiary of BAE Systems, Inc. Atlantic Marine is a provider of vessel maintenance, repair, overhaul and conversion (“MROC”) as well as marine fabrication services to government and commercial maritime customers.
