Mark Partin, chief executive officer of Quality Shipbuilders, Inc., Moss Point, Miss., recently announced the following changes within the shipbuilding firm.

Jack Edwards is now president and coowner of the firm which has changed its name to Homeport Marine Services, Inc. Mr. Edwards joined Quality Shipbuilders as a vice president after his resignation as president of Halter Marine in Moss Point last year.

Mr. Partin said Homeport Marine Services has new construction capabilities of vessels up to 275 feet in length. He said the new firm is in the repair business and is capable of any type of marine and industrial repairs. He also said the restructured firm will continue to build vessels for the oil and fishing industry, but has broadened the scope of its operations to include equipment rentals and repair services for homeport- related industry or marine service companies.

Another feature of the revamped business is a general contractor division. Under its new division, Mr. Partin said the firm does a wide variety of general construction work for industry and business, including the erection of new buildings and renovation and remodeling work.
