At DSC Dredge, we specialize in customizing dredging equipment to meet the exact requirements of your unique application. DSC employs one of the largest in-house dredge design/engineering team among all North American and most global manufacturers. This fully self-sufficient team encompasses a blend of Mechanical Engineers, Structural Designers and Automation Engineers who are responsible for all aspects of the project from generating fabrication drawings to performing structural analysis, and designing dredge hydraulics to programming dredge control systems. Our roots go back more than 60 years as a family-owned and -operated dredge manufacturer. And during that time, we have built hundreds of dredges. Our six standard dredge models are world-class. But our strength lies in our ability to modify or custom design any dredge to fit almost any application.
