It costs money to move goods, services and personnel from offshore to onshore and vice versa. As the prices of fossil fuels continue to fluctuate, larger construction support vessels simply will not take the smaller, less profitable work. Enter Josh Jambon, CEO of Jambon Boats in Golden Meadow, Louisiana.
“Specifically, we saw the opportunity to serve a very narrow window of services. Offshore supplies, crew, inshore barges and brokerage are our specialties, but we also offer specialized diving operations for large offshore operations,” said Josh Jambon, CEO of Jambon Boats.
Hurricanes, certified marine personnel and other inconveniences keep many boats docked unless there is an absolute need. It is simply not profitable for a large boat to service a small crew or minor supply orders. The fickle oil industry makes work opportunities sporadic, but Jambon has managed to find a way to balance the time.
“If you are responsible for an offshore derrick or other structure off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and need something, I want to know. Our job is to make your job easier, your employees happier and your company more profitable. It cannot be one, it must be all three,” continued Jambon.
Small scale dive operations are just as expensive and necessary as large scale, but a small scale operation may be more important than a large scale. Jambon Boats can meet any diving operation need.
“Our team of certified divers have all the pre-requisite skills to meet and match the needs of the customer. Specific or general, let us [Jambon Boats] know what you need and we will handle it,” Jambon said in the final parts of the interview.
