Many current shipyard practices date back to the 1700s – the days of sail, square-riggers, Nelson, and John Paul Jones. Some of those practices are very slow, unsafe, and labor-intensive.
Legacy engineering is dangerous, and by definition should be a thing of the past.

Syncrolift® Inc. of Miami, FL, and DM Consulting Inc (DMC) of San Diego, CA – two world leaders in the field of drydock engineering are joining forces to modernize shipyard operations and bring them into the 21ST Century. Together the two companies are committed to bringing modern, safer, and best-engineering practices to the industry.

Established in 2000, DMC is recognized worldwide as a leading authority on the drydocking of ships and vessels. DMC personnel are dry dock experts with a combined 150+ years of experience in the industry, including involvement in over 2500 vessel drydocking projects and covering in excess of 5000 drydocking operations.

DMC conducts Dry Dock Training around the world, in addition to a re-occurring International Dry Dock Conference and Advance Training Forum. Syncrolift® has been a significant player in the shipyard market for seven decades with 300 shiplift installations around the world.
