Global Diving Establishes SoCal Location

By Mark Edward Nero

Seattle-based Global Diving & Salvage is expanding its California operations with the addition of a new office in Los Angeles County, the company said June 1.

The new office, located in Signal Hill, bordering Long Beach, supports Global’s core service lines: marine construction, casualty response and offshore support.

“This new location will ensure rapid response and support to clients in the Ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Diego as well as throughout the Southwest,” Danny Broadhurst, Global’s California operations manager, and manager of the new facility, said. “As the largest diving company on the West Coast, Global’s continued expansion of regional capacities will provide customers with the quality of service known as ‘The Global Way’.”

Founded in 1979 as a diving and marine services company, Global now specializes in deep diving down to 1,000 feet, casualty response, and marine construction activities. Capabilities include saturation dive systems, mixed gas surface diving, remotely operated vehicles, marine salvage, emergency response, and both training and consulting services.

The company also offers a variety of environmental services related to upland and marine remediation, as well as engineering support for projects requiring technical underwater procedures and tooling. Global’s currently involved with marine construction projects throughout the United States and performs salvage projects internationally.

In addition to Seattle and Signal Hill, the company has additional offices in the San Francisco Bay Area; Houston, Texas; and Anchorage, Alaska.
