"Give the customers what they want.
This is what sets
HBC Barge apart.'!
What's the measure of a well designed barge? Listen to the people who design them to meet the customer's needs.
HBC Barge Designer, Carl
Malek: "Some of our competitors offer options. But we know that giving our customers the barge they want means more than offering a limited list of options. "Our customers can specify any applicable modifications. Such as: plating in a variety of gages, angles, cuts and shapes not pos- sible with 'one-way' construction; temperature control systems; linings, coatings and insulations; electrical or mechanical power sources, pumping and piping sys- tems. Even special welding for cer- tain applications. "Our design experience, knowledge of materials and acces- sories, and our construction flexibil- ity let us build a quality barge, to customer specs, delivered on-time, all at a competitive price. This com- bination has kept our customers coming back."
