Founder Joseph Farrell, Jr. began operations in 1980 with the RESOLVE, a single tug that provided salvage services to coastal freighters and small vessels in the Caribbean. In 1984, Joe formed Resolve Marine, as it is known today. In the wake of U.S. Coast Guard OPA 90 regulations, operations expanded: equipment depots were established across North America and a maritime firefighting training facility was launched to train personnel. After refining the emergency response model domestically, the company expanded globally. Joe now leads Mission Resolve, the philanthropic arm of Resolve Marine that focuses on removing plastics and other debris from the world’s oceans and other humanitarian, educational, and community efforts.
We’re proud that the world’s largest ships come to us to protect them. You don’t get that from good advertising – you get it from a solid track record.
