The SMS Machine Fabrication Shop was added to Western Rivers in 2010 to accommodate the needs of land-based heavy equipment operators.
It began when we started rehabbing vessels, and quickly grew to what is now a machine shop, a fabrication shop and electrical shop with a dry-dock that can handle 2,000 tons.
