New Tug Company Formed

To Serve Great Lakes

Port And Harbor Areas

A new towing company featuring the coordinated efforts of four inde- pendent tug operators serving the

Great Lakes has been formed, ac- cording to an announcement by

Warren A. Jackman, a director of the Michigan-based Lakeswide

Towing Group, Inc.

The Group is said to be the only tug company on the Great Lakes to provide local on-site dispatching, on-site management, and on-site harbor conditions monitoring. Mr.

Jackman said that the Group's tug operators are among the most expe- rienced in the trades, and will con- tinue to service those areas in which they have specialized for many years.

The Group—consisting of Gaelic

Tugboat Company, North American

Towing Company, Seaway Towing,

Inc., and JMS Towing Service,

Inc.—will provide towing in the fol- lowing areas: Detroit, Toledo, and other Lake Erie ports (Gaelic); Du- luth, Superior, Chicago, Gary/India- na Harbor, and Burns Harbor (North American); the Sault Ste.

Marie locks and St. Mary's River (Seaway); and Kenosha, Milwaukee,

Green Bay, Sturgeon Bay, and east- ern Lake Michigan ports (JMS

Towing). Mr. Jackman empha- sized that carriers and vessel agents requiring towing services in several ports and harbors can place all of their orders by contacting any one of the Group's member companies. "By offering these coordinated ser- vices, the Group guarantees person- al attention by the individual tow- ing companies involved in the ship's transit," he said.
