Schuyler Maritime opens new facility

Broussard, LA – Schuyler Maritime, a leading provider of laminated rubber vessel fenders, announced the opening of its new facility in Broussard, Louisiana. The new 12,000 sqft facility was built to meet the high demand of the vessel fender market. “This new facility will have a tremendous impact on production capabilities†said Dale Langley, general manager of Schuyler Maritime. “We’re known for our quick delivery times, and this new facility will take Schuyler Maritime to a new level in serving the vessel fender market by providing our clients with their fender systems faster than ever before.â€

Schuyler Maritime has designed, tested and manufactured laminated rubber fenders since 1950. Laminated rubber’s proven track record of economy, protection, durability, and reliability make it the preferred choice over virgin extruded and molded rubber for tugs, pushboats, barges, ferries, piers, docks, dolphins, trawlers and other marine vessels and structures.

Schuyler Maritime is proud to be a ‘green’ company. Their fenders are manufactured from 100% recycled material that would otherwise be land filled. By curbing the need for cutting trees for traditional wood timber bumpers, Schuyler Maritime is helping preserver our natural resources.
