As the world was reshaped by Covid-19, it is safe to say that 2020 was “one for the history books.” Like most companies around the world, DSC Dredge, LLC (DSC) had to quickly adapt their business to a new reality.
This family-owned international dredging company found itself constantly assessing how to ensure business continuity for their customers around the world while also ensuring the strictest of safety measures for their team members.
Some of DSC’s 2020 highlights are:
2020 Delivers – Dredges, Remarketed Equipment, Parts and Committed Support
In 2020, DSC successfully delivered over 21 new or remarketed Dredges and Boosters within both the domestic and international market.
