“I have had the pleasure of working with Steve and the Vanport team since 1993. During this time, Vanport Marine has completed a wide variety of projects at our facilities including welding, pier improvements, and fabrication. They are a very reliable industrial “salt of the earth” contractor. Their employees are courteous, hard-working and can be relied upon to perform the work both safely, and right the first time. We would highly recommend them.”
“We recently upgraded our tug the Lincoln. As a leader in the transportation of river cargo on the Columbia and Snake River system, safety and quality are of two of our highest priorities. When it came time to select a contractor to fabricate and install a new deck level to raise the pilot house on the Lincoln, we chose Vanport because of their reputation in the Maritime industry. We were not disappointed. They completed the project safely, on time, and on budget. We expect to be working with the Vanport team on future projects.”

“We have worked with Vanport on many special projects over the past 10 years. The professionalism and attention to detail is in a class all its own. We don’t have any jobs that come with plans or drawings, and Vanport has always been able to work with us on positive, effective solutions from inception to completion. Even when the shop is busy, they always find a way to squeeze us in!”

“When we had project with a critical deadline, we went to Vanport. We had them fabricate two pollution domes for a project with an important and demanding client. They worked closely with the engineer to develop a weldment that was able to be fabricated quickly and shipped easily to the job site. Their team worked around the clock to make sure we met our deadline. The domes were shipped from their facility and arrived on site without incident. With this crucial piece of equipment, we were able to complete our work and satisfy our client.”
“Vanport is one of our go-to contractors. We have worked with Steve and his team for many years because they are reliable and trustworthy. The vessels we maintain are mission critical. Everything we do on these ships must be done on time and to the highest standards. Vanport has performed structural repairs, a new stack installation, various piping repairs, door installations, stateroom updating, emergency diesel generator removal and replacement, and many other projects that help keep our vessel ready for deployment. When we need it on schedule, at the budgeted price, and properly done, we call Vanport.”
