Young Brothers earns two key industry certifications
Advertiser StaffYoung Brothers, Ltd. and Hawaiian Tug & Barge today announced that the companies have earned key two industry certifications for their Marine Division.
"Both of these certifications add strong value to our company and contribute to making our services more efficient and safer," said Bruce McEwen, Young Brothers Vice President of Administration. "Both certifications also add to our existing Responsible Carrier Program Certification from the American Waterways Operators," he added.
