INSIGHTSsomebody new, that we have not worked with before, we spend a lot of time managing and supervising them to ensure they provide the quality and safety we require.

Crowley supports most all aspects related to marine project solutions, transportation and logistics. These businessesÕ have different risks associated with them, but are synergistic to one another. This allows us to provide a wide range of solutions to our customers. Each Crowley unit has a business plan, which takes into account the risk vs. reward, and executes the plan accordingly. The diversity of the business units helps make Crowley the unique company that it is. Being a part of Crowley allows Titan to have the Þ nancial strength and staying power, to respond globally and simultaneously to multiple salvage and wreck removal projects, including those that are the largest and most complex.14 MNAugust 2012
