Singer Equities acquires Shipyard Supply

Singer Equities has acquired Shipyard Supply headquartered in Metairie, Louisiana.

Shipyard Supply distributes and fabricates metal, industrial and composite hose assemblies, fittings, and industrial supplies out of locations in Metairie, Houston, and Mobile, Alabama. The business was founded in 1992 and serves a diverse customer base in the general industrial, refinery, petrochemical, marine and construction markets.

President and owner Jeff Wickersham, who has been active in the business, will remain and the business will continue operating under the Shipyard Supply name.

“Jeff and his talented team have built a successful hose business by providing exceptional service throughout the Gulf region and beyond,” said Sam Petillo, president of Singer Equities. “This acquisition expands Singer’s product offering and strengthens our presence in the refinery and petrochemical markets in the Gulf region.”

Wickersham added, “Singer is the right partner to support Shipyard’s core values of providing exceptional customer service and world-class products. Singer’s scale and national footprint will help us better serve our customers.”

Singer Equities has 57 locations specializing in industrial and hydraulic hose, conveyor belt, gaskets, and related services.
