Treasury Secretary Visits Ellicott Dredges

U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew, joined by Maryland Senator Ben Cardin, yesterday visited Ellicott Dredges, a South Baltimore manufacturer of dredging equipment.

The Cabinet secretary toured the company that has designed and made more than 2,500 dredges for customers in more than 80 countries for functions such as harbor and navigation maintenance, river and channel dredging, erosion control, environmental cleanup, sand mining, etc.

Ellicott’s equipment is heavily used in developing countries, where their machines help in mining, environmental cleanup and acquisition of raw materials,” said Craig Murdock, Ellicott’s general manager.

I always look forward to visiting companies that manufacture in Maryland. Our visit to Ellicott Dredges, LLC in Baltimore highlights The White House and my commitment to fostering economic growth and investing in American infrastructure,” said Senator Ben Cardin.

Dredging is critically important to shipping power houses like the Port of Baltimore as well as the over all health of the Chesapeake‬ Bay,” added Cardin.

The company, founded in 1885 and located on Bush Street since 1900, is the largest maker of dredging equipment in the United States.
