Crowley Maritime Corp. announced today that the company has fully integrated Jensen Maritime into its new Crowley Engineering Services group.

The new group will combine Crowley’s diverse business portfolio and long history of engineering, project management and marine operations with Seattle-based Jensen’s marine engineering and naval architecture expertise. The result is a stronger, singular source for customers seeking high-level design expertise drawing on Crowley’s overall knowledge of management and operations of vessels, including tugboats, articulated tug-barges, and other commercial and government vessels, the company said.

“This exciting transformation reflects the evolution of Crowley’s capabilities as single source for engineering and design since Jensen joined Crowley as a subsidiary in 2008,” Matt Yacavone, senior vice president and general manager, Crowley Shipping, said in a statement. “The new group fits our strategic vision for growth by better connecting naval architecture and marine engineering customers with the full suite of Crowley’s experience and knowledge from ship assist tugs to emerging and traditional offshore energy services.”

Services provided by Crowley Shipping include:
•    design, engineering, construction management and operation of vessels 
•    ship assist and tanker escort services 
•    offshore energy installations and project management
•    wind energy solutions 
•    and operating and managing petroleum tank vessels and global cargo ships. 

While all employees and business dealings, including new contracts, communications and email, will operate as Crowley, the Jensen name will live on through its industry leading designs and naval architecture that will continue to be offered under Crowley Engineering, the company said. Legacy designs and new designs will be marketed as Crowley while indicating "Design Powered by Jensen."

“We are looking forward to showing customers the benefits they can achieve by leveraging the combined Crowley and Jensen experience, expertise and portfolios,” said Ray Martus, vice president, Crowley Engineering Services. “This transformative change will best take advantage of our teams’ knowledge and potential to lead more growth for Crowley and more value for customers.”

Crowley’s engineering services team provides a full range of marine and engineering solutions. This includes detail and conceptual vessel design and modification, shipyard management, and on-site consulting services for all types of marine projects.
