Looking to bring the complete range of its services to maritime clients seeking design-build-operate solutions, Crowley Maritime Corporation has now fully integrated its Jensen Maritime unit into the Crowley Engineering Services group.
It says the new group “will seamlessly combine Crowley’s diverse business portfolio and long history of engineering, project management and marine operations with Seattle-based Jensen’s industry-leading marine engineering and naval architecture expertise.”
“This exciting transformation reflects the evolution of Crowley’s capabilities as single source for engineering and design since Jensen joined Crowley as a subsidiary in 2008,” said Matt Yacavone, senior vice president and general manager, Crowley Shipping. “The new group fits our strategic vision for growth by better connecting naval architecture and marine engineering customers with the full suite of Crowley’s experience and knowledge from ship assist tugs to emerging and traditional offshore energy services.”
The range of solutions provided by Crowley Shipping span:
- the design, engineering, construction management and operation of vessels
- ship assist and tanker escort services
- offshore energy installations and project management
- wind energy solutions
- operating and managing petroleum tank vessels and global cargo ships.
While all employees and business dealings, including new contracts, communications and email, will operate as Crowley, the Jensen name will live on through its designs and naval architecture that will continue to be offered under Crowley Engineering. Legacy designs and new designs will be marketed as Crowley while indicating “Design Powered by Jensen.”
“We are looking forward to showing customers the benefits they can achieve by leveraging the combined Crowley and Jensen experience, expertise and portfolios,” said Ray Martus, vice president, Crowley Engineering Services. “This transformative change will best take advantage of our teams’ knowledge and potential to lead more growth for Crowley and more value for customers.”
