EBDG Becomes Employee-Owned Firm

Tuesday, December 06, 2011
Elliott Bay Design Group LLC (EBDG) announced that its management and employees have purchased the firm from its parent company, American Commercial Lines (ACL). The transaction closed on December 1, 2011. Following an internal business  review, ACL decided to divest itself of EBDG to focus on its core businesses – inland towing and barge construction. Both EBDG and ACL look forward to working together on future vessel building projects. EBDG is also in the process of re-opening its second office in New Orleans, La. 
“We effected the management buyout with the goal of growing the firm, pursuing a wider range of projects and having greater flexibility to hire outstanding employees,” said John Waterhouse, Chief Concept Engineer at EBDG. This increased  independence also allows EBDG to be more nimble in responding to customers.
“Being an employee-owned company makes EBDG an exciting place to work for 'up and coming' engineers and designers,” said Joe Pritting, EBDG President. “We have a strong, positive culture with a fun, creative working atmosphere.”
