Houston-based Hoover said in a news release the acquisition of the New Iberia, La.-based Dolphin creates a combined company that will be a supplier of chemical, cargo and waste management tanks, baskets, containers and related accessories and services in the global energy marketplace.
Dolphin serves the Gulf of Mexico region and is known for its offshore baskets, trash compactors, food disposal units, pipe slings and related consumables and services. Dolphin also has a distribution and service center in Port Fourchon, La.
Hoover, a subsidiary of Hoover Group Inc., said the purchase complements the acquisition of Norway’s Consult Supply A/S, a container firm buy that was completed in 2012.
“The combined Hoover-Dolphin fleet is one of the largest in the Gulf of Mexico region and makes Hoover one of the only worldwide companies to offer a full range of cargo carrying units including chemical, cargo and waste management products to the Gulf of Mexico market,” said Donald Young, Hoover CEO.
