Joseph Le Blanc Jr. Retires From Trinity Marine Group

Joseph H. Le Blanc Jr., a nationally known figure in the shipbuilding industry for almost 25 years, recently retired from his post as sales manager of the Trinity Marine Group, which is owned by Trinity Industries, Inc.

Mr. Le Blanc joined Halter Marine Services, Inc., in January 1969, as production manager of the New Orleans Division and was later promoted to general manager. In October 1971, he became executive vice president and was named president in December 1977.

He resigned in May 1979, and later became sales manager for Moss Point Marine, Inc.

When that company was acquired by Trinity Industries Inc., in 1987, and John Dane III, Moss Point's president, was named president of the Trinity Marine Group, Mr. Le Blanc assumed the sales manager's position of the four shipbuilding companies in the group. In addition to Moss Point Marine, the other companies of the Trinity Marine Group are Halter Marine, Inc., Equitable Shipyards, Inc., and Gretna Machine and Iron Works, Inc.

Mr. Dane said Mr. Le Blanc brought unparalleled experience to his new company and credited him with guiding Halter Marine through much of its growth and acquisitions while increasing its profitability.
