About Gray Barge

THE GRAY BARGE COMPANIES are built on tradition and over 65 years of proven experience. We deliver the highest quality products and services in the marine transportation and logistics industry. Founded as J.R. Gray Barge, Inc. in 1946 by J. Ralph Gray, the company has grown steadily ever since. Our inland fleet currently includes more than 90 barges and our fleet of ABS Full Ocean Classed Barges is growing rapidly. A third generation family business, the Gray Barge companies are currently owned and operated by John S. Gray, the grandson of our founder. Through our evolution, the company continues to reflect the same themes established over half a century ago at our inception, those of quality, integrity and a desire to provide the best marine equipment in the market.

Gray Barge has a wide range of customers in the marine construction, marine transportation, oil and gas exploration and production, petrochemical and refining, basic aggregate and project cargo industries. With our existing inland fleet and shipyard, we are able to provide these valued customers with top quality marine equipment and marine repair services. In addition, our expanding fleet of ABS Full Ocean Classed Vessels allows us to provide equipment and services to our clients both internationally and domestically.

The Gray Barge headquarters is located in Houma, Louisiana, only 1/4 mile off the Intracoastal Waterway, with additional fleeting locations in Lake Charles and Venice, Louisiana, as well as Ingleside, Texas.
