Ed Shearer, P.E., President of Shearer & Assoc., Inc., and Greg Beers, P.E., President of Bristol Harbor Group, Inc., have announced the formation of The Shearer Group, Inc., a new corporate entity that will provide naval architecture, marine engineering, marine surveying and professional engineer services to clients in the inland and offshore marine industry.
The Shearer Group, Inc. is a combination of the best of what Mr. Shearer has spent the past several decades building at Shearer & Assoc., Inc.; and that which Mr. Beers and his partners Cory Wood and Andrew Tyska have built at Bristol Harbor Group, Inc. over the past 15 years.
Bristol Harbor Group, Inc., based in Bristol, RI, is a full-service naval architecture and marine engineering organization providing naval architecture and marine engineering services for the inland and offshore markets in the United States, the Caribbean and South America. Together with their current Houston affiliate, Bristol Harbor Group South, Inc., which focuses on construction oversight and marine surveying, Bristol Harbor Group, Inc. has had the good fortune to work on vessels ranging from 18 foot center console powerboats, to 60,000 BBL ocean going oil tank barges, and many vessels in between. These include, but are not limited to ocean going tugs, inland towboats, split hull hopper barges and a self propelled split hull vessel, passenger vessels, patrol boats, deck barges, hopper barges and yachts.
