The employees of Ellicott Dredges LLC in Baltimore, Maryland had two big reasons for celebration this week.
First Ellicott’s Baltimore plant has achieved an enviable safety record of one thousand (1,000) consecutive working days without a lost time accident. Ellicott values safety at all its locations and emphasizes safety in all aspects of its manufacturing processes.
Secondly, Ellicott is now celebrating its 130th year of business. Founded in 1885, Ellicott first gained global recognition in the dredge business by building all the dredges used in the original construction of the Panama Canal.
Ellicott is now not only the oldest player among dredge builders, but the largest builder of portable cutter dredges.
