Rock Hill Invests in LeBlanc Marine
Rock Hill Capital Group has completed a majority recapitalization of LeBlanc Marine LLC, a marine service company providing marine construction, barge and tug services, and material offloading services along the Gulf Coast.
“Ben and Cody have built a robust platform to provide marine construction and ancillary services along the Gulf Coast. The LeBlanc team is highly entrepreneurial, we look forward to helping them broaden their geographic footprint and expand into new service offerings,” Randall B. Hale, Managing Director of Rock Hill.
LeBlanc, founded in 2004 by Ben LeBlanc, began by providing barge cleaning and repair services as well as tug support from its primary facility in the Port of Iberia, in New Iberia, Louisiana.
In 2015, Ben partnered with Cody Fortier, and the company launched its marine construction division, including dredging, levee construction, and coastal restoration.
In late 2015, LeBlanc began providing material offloading services for many of its key material vendors along the Gulf Coast and Mississippi River.
“We believe Rock Hill’s involvement will provide the strategic insight and operational guidance needed for us to elevate to the next level. We are excited to have found a partner that recognizes the opportunity for growth and thinks about the business like we do,” concluded Ben LeBlanc, CEO of LeBlanc.
