Ketchikan's Boyer Barge merges with Seattle company

Posted: Thursday, October 31, 2002

KETCHIKAN (AP) -- A Ketchikan barge company has joined forces with a Seattle company in a merger announced this week.

The teaming up of Boyer Alaska Barge Line Inc. and Seattle-based Northland Services was announced Tuesday.

Boyer Towing Inc. was not included in the deal, but will provide towing and barge services for the new integrated company.

Neither firm is taking over the other, but each brings certain strengths to the merger, said officials from both companies.

Boyer Barge Lines has operated in Southern Southeast Alaska for 35 years, providing service between Seattle, Ketchikan, Prince of Wales Island, Metlakatla and Wrangell.

Northland Services, established in 1977, provides barge service between Seattle, Alaska and Russia.
