The First Marine repair yard is a full-service yard and has been upgraded with new machine, electrical and fabrication shops and storage capability plus a new dry-dock capable of handling 2,000 tons. Before adding the new repair facility, the company was already operating Western Rivers Diesel Division in a facility next door to its main headquarters on South 4th Street.

They offer new engine installation, engine rebuilding and repair, block welding and repair, gear box installation and repair, laser alignments, hydraulic maintenance and repair, electrical service and an extensive parts warehouse.
