NEW ORLEANS --Jackson Offshore Llc has been certified as a minority business by the state of Louisiana, says Lee Jackson, company president and CEO. New Orleans-based Jackson Offshore provides crewboat services to contractors involved in rebuilding New Orleans and south Louisiana.
Equity partners in Jackson include Rigdon Marine Corp. and Bourbon. "Rigdon and Bourbon have been intricately involved in the reinvestment and support in rebuilding the Gulf region since Hurricane Katrina," Jackson says. "To have these companies involved in Jackson Offshore and to assist us in bringing forward next-generation technologies and equipment for crewboat operations in the Gulf of Mexico is important to our long-term growth."
