National Marine Service Incorporated, St. Louis, Mo., a recognized leader in shipyard and diesel engine repairs, announces the opening of its new East Coast diesel engine parts and service facility at 4580 Village Avenue, Norfolk, Va. (804) 855-9277.
National Marine indicates the Norfolk facility, the result of much research and assistance from the Greater Hampton Road Organization, is Phase I in the continuing plan to expand service to its East Coast customers. The facility's strategic location will reduce response time and costs for East Coast customers who have previously been served from National Marine's St. Louis base. Service crews will travel to job locations along the East Coast and overseas from the Norfolk location, which will also carry a substantial inventory of new and remanufactured diesel engine parts.
National Marine offers shipyard services as well as diesel engine parts and service to Inland, Gulf and East Coast customers through its full service shipyards in St.
Louis, Mo., New Orleans, La., and Grafton, II. For over 50 years the Transport Division of National Marine has provided contract bulk liquid transportation on the Inland and Gulf waterways.
National Marine Service Incorporated is one of the NICOR basic energy companies.
