What people are saying

The workforce at Fraser is the best I have ever worked and is considered to be the best in the industry. The Men and Women sacrifice weekends, holidays, and family to answer calls 24/7/365, keeping ships running up and down the Great Lakes. For many who work here it has become a standard. Making these sacrifices, doing the work, and getting the job done are the reasons why Fraser Shipyards is the best repair yard on the Great Lakes.

Knowing you’re one of the best is also knowing that there is always room for improvement. That’s why we listen to our customers’ needs and make it our goal to deliver, no matter how big or small the job is.
