The Company:
RESOLVE Marine Group, Inc. is a marine services organization that provides salvage, emergency response, training, naval architecture and marine engineering and many other services to the global maritime industry. For more than 30 years, RESOLVE has served commercial shipping companies, cruise lines, the offshore oil and gas industry, marine insurers, governments, agencies and other clients worldwide. The firm’s services include marine salvage, emergency response and OPA-90 Salvage & Marine Firefighting, lightering, wreck removal, marine safety training, marine and salvage engineering, damage stability and many other related services.

The Case:
In 1980, RESOLVE was founded by Joseph E. Farrell, Jr., a US Coast Guard and US Navy veteran. RESOLVE grew along with its reputation for successful completion of challenging assignments. Expansion into maritime emergency response soon followed. Through aggressive expansion of RESOLVE’s emergency salvage & marine firefighting (SMFF) response capabilities, the company was soon positioned to respond to commercial tanker emergencies in U.S. waters. Today, RESOLVE provides SMFF coverage for almost 40% of tankers trading in U.S. waters. To meet RESOLVE’s own needs and the needs of the maritime industry for marine firefighters, Farrell created specialized marine firefighting training programs. In 1999, RESOLVE Maritime Academy was founded to train both RESOLVE responders and mariners in all sectors of the industry. Over time, the RESOLVE team has completed some of the most unique and challenging operations in the maritime industry.
