The Company:
Seattle-based Markey Machinery Company has roots in the marine and logging industries stretching as far back as the early 1900s. Founded by Charles Markey in 1907, the company has seen several generations of Markeys at its helm through more than 100 years of company growth. Today, led by Blaine W. Dempke and Robert A. LeCoque, the company’s primary focus lies in the manufacture, support and service of custom deck machinery for workboat, scientific and dockside applications.

The Case:
Markey specializes in the fabrication and machining of large complex components and sub-assemblies for many applications. A market leader in the design and production of deck machinery, Markey produces and services block winches; near-shore research winches; traction winch systems; towing winches; capstans; anchor handling winches; deck fittings; dredging winches and custom drives; anchor windlasses; abandonment and recovery (A&R) winches; escort, hawser, ship-assist winches; other specialty winches and oceanographic products. Markey’s production facility accommodates virtually every heavy material-handling requirement for new equipment or machinery replacement orders, also offering one-off prototype design and manufacturing, from concept to completion. In addition to its main offices and fabrication facility in Seattle, Markey has several service and support representatives in locations throughout the United States, Europe, Australia and Korea.
