David Myer (center) and his sons, Bradley (left) and Brandon (right), look at the company’s latest expansion blueprints.

 

 

Mobile-based Myer Marine Services is expanding its west Mobile facility by more than 50% and will hire 50 new employees over the next several years.

 

Led by David Myer and sons Brandon and Bradley Myer, the company is investing $5.5 million to add 36,000 square feet to the current manufacturing operations and will purchase multiple adjacent buildings and properties.

 

One of the new buildings, once restored, will become home to the company’s engineering department, growing sales team and administrative staff.

 

Myer Marine Services is a steel fabrication, machining and field services company, serving customers in the dredging, maritime, construction/infrastructure and specialty products industries primarily in the Southeast and along the Atlantic coast.

 

The Myers broke ground on the current location on Blackburn Drive in 2014 with plans to hire 40 additional employees and increase its workforce to 60-plus. Today, Myer Marine Services has 121 on its payroll.

 

David Myer, president of Myer Marine Services, said this new investment will help his company’s overall goal to be a leader in steel fabrication and machining. “Since our founding in 2013, we have been very blessed to have continued steady growth for eight straight years, thanks to our talented and dedicated team of employees. We look forward to what is next.”
