Resolve Marine Acquires MAC Enterprises
Looking south from the Aleutian World War II National Historic Area over the Port of Dutch Harbor and Iliuliuk Bay.
Two maritime support companies in Dutch Harbor are joining forces. The Alaska subsidiary of Florida-based Resolve Marine is acquiring MAC Enterprises. While Resolve Alaska specializes in vessel salvage, rescue, and emergency response, MAC Enterprises brings expertise in welding and diving.
Keeping Vessels Seaworthy
Established in 1982 by Jimmer and Alyssa McDonald, MAC Enterprises supports commercial and fishing fleets of some of the largest seafood companies in the country, as well as local, state, and national government agencies.
The company offers a wide range of underwater welding and commercial diving services, including hull inspection and surveys, hull and sea chest cleaning and scraping, and propeller inspection and maintenance. MAC Enterprises also provides mooring, marine and freight transport, and off-season vessel security.
Resolve Alaska General Manager A.W. McAfee says, “We are excited to bring Jimmer and his experienced team into the fold of Resolve Marine Alaska services. 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 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 statewide.
