Our crew is well-equipped to provide a wide variety of repairs, adjustments and complete custom fabrication (including machining, shafts, wheels, rudders and bearings) in either of our two dry docks — or topside in your Chicago or Northwest Indiana location. We also do USCG and ABS vessel¬†inspections.

We are the only shipyard on the Illinois river system with the capability to drydock your 30,000 barrel tank barge. No more long, tedious trips down to the Mississippi — we can do your out-of-water repairs right here in Chicagoland.

We are now taking orders for customized LCR (Lake, Canal or River) Floats, a TPG Chicago Dry Dock specialty. These floats are custom crafted to individual customer specifications are are ideal for use as construction flats, boarding floats or staging vessels.
