About Us

Heddle Marine Service Inc. was established in 1987. Our company is the largest marine repair firm that operates floating dry-docks on the Canadian side of the Great Lakes, and we are based in the Port of Hamilton. In 1990, our company grew substantially with the completion of our first floating dry-dock measuring 76.2m (250') in length with a 3,200 ton capacity.

In 1998, our company completed its second, larger dry-dock offering a 6,500 DWT capacity, 94 feet (28.7m) between the wingwalls, which can handle vessels up to 400 feet (121.9m) in length.  We are a full service ship repair yard, providing expert, on time and on budget repair services to all types and various sizes of vessels in the marine industry.

Our facility is located on land leased from the Hamilton Port Authority. The site has 160,000 square feet of land, 1,000 feet of wharfage and dock frontage, 30,500 square feet of fabrication shop and 5,000 square feet of machine shop.

Our company is continually expanding to meet the demands of our present customers and accommodate new customers. A third dry-dock, larger in size than the second, is now under construction and will allow us to begin dry docking the largest lake freighters sailing the lower Great Lakes.
