The board of directors of Gulf Coast Fabrication, Inc. has announced the election of Dan Mortimer Mortimer as president of the new company which has acquired an existing shipyard site in Pass Christian, Miss.

Our current plans are to launch our first barge by September and deliver a 180-foot unit no less than monthly thereafter. By creating a production capacity predicted upon cost-effective techniques and equipment, with building a welltrained and motivated group of craftsmen we will position ourselves to offer very competitive prices and on-time deliveries."
