Resolve Marine Group, a Florida-based multinational company specializing in ship and vessel salvage, rescue, emergency response and specialized marine services, has acquired MAC Enterprises, Inc., a provider of welding, diving, boat watch and chartering services in Alaska’s Dutch Harbor and the Aleutian Islands.
MAC Enterprises was established in 1982 by Jimmer and Alyssa McDonald and supports commercial and fishing fleets of some major seafood companies as well as local, state and national government agencies.
The company provides a range of underwater welding and commercial diving services, including hull inspection and surveys, sea chest cleaning and scraping, and propeller inspection and maintenance approved by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
The company also offers mooring, marine and freight transport and search and recovery services. Specialized vessel security services are offered during offseason and inclement weather conditions.
“We are excited to bring Jimmer and his experienced team into the fold of Resolve Marine Alaska Services,” Resolve Alaska General Manager A.W. McAfee said. “The combination provides our community greater resources to keep vessels seaworthy and running 24/7. Jimmer’s well-earned reputation of providing quality, affordable services make the business combination seamless for both organizations and the growing client base we serve.”
Resolve Alaska, a unit of Resolve Marine, provides shipyard and marine services for commercial and fishing vessels from its waterfront Dutch Harbor facility, aviation services from Anchorage and vessel support services from Kodiak. A fleet of tugs, barges and heavy-lift and crane equipment support offshore emergency marine, salvage and recovery response throughout the state of Alaska.
The Resolve parent company, based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is a private firm established in 1984. It has commercial offices, response warehouses and equipment depots in the U.S., Europe, Africa and Asia.
