New Ship Repair Facility At Port Of Portland
Douglas Watson, president and general manager, has announced the formation of West State, Incorporated (WSI) and the opening of their new facility at the Port of Portland Ship Repair Yard on Swan Island, Portland, Ore. This full-service ship repair company was founded, according to Mr.
Watson, in order to provide quality ship repair services to the commercial ocean going vessel owners/operators at a price more competitive than was formerly available in Portland. Several of WSI's shipping company customers have indicated that the new repair firm is very welcome and will certainly be given the opportunity to participate in the competitive process.
WSI's management nucleus consists of Mr. Watson, formerly operations manager for Dillingham Ship Repair in Portland, general superintendent Michael McDougall and assistant general superintendent Edward Yeager, both also former Dillingham supervisors. There is over 50 years of ship repair experience combined in this team.
