Singer Equities, Inc. has acquired Shipyard Supply, LLC. Metairie, Louisiana-based Shipyard Supply distributes and fabricates metal, industrial and composite hose assemblies, fittings and industrial supplies out of their locations in Metairie, Houston and Mobile, Alabama. Founded in 1992, Shipyard Supply serves a diverse customer base in the general industrial, refinery, petrochemical, marine and construction markets.

Jeff Wickersham adds, “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.”
