Our Heritage

Gulf Copper was founded in 1948 and developed into a successful pipe fabrication company with a reputation for premium quality work installing copper piping on marine vessels. In 1979, the company was acquired by the Gulf Copper Group, and expanded services into full topside ship repair with the addition of a machining division. Over the years, Gulf Copper has continued to diversify, now servicing the commercial marine, offshore, shipping, oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation, construction and transportation industries. 

In 1998, Gulf Copper became an employee-owned company, retaining talented personnel skilled in various trades including welders, fitters, machinists, electricians, laborers, and administrative and support staff. Gulf Copper strives to be the preferred provider of marine and industrial fabrication and repair in the markets we serve. Customers include major and independent offshore drilling rig contractors, offshore oil and gas operating and service companies, national oil companies, major commercial ship operators and the United States government and military.
