New Timber Pile Supports NJ Fishery

The historic seaside town of Cape May, NJ is arguably one of the oldest tourist destinations in the United States. Located where Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, the town's largest industry is tourism and it has much to offer such as the Washington Street Mall, Cape May Boardwalk, and many historic hotels. Commercial fishing is almost just as important to Cape May's economy and has been a mainstay in the area since the late 1600's. The combined port of Cape May/Wildwood is the largest commercial fishing port in New Jersey and is one of the largest on the East Coast, making this port the center of fish processing and freezing in New Jersey.  

Lund's Fisheries, Inc. is a third-generation, family-owned company and a primary producer of fresh and frozen seafood in Cape May with one of the largest seafood processing facilities on the eastern seaboard. Over 1,200' (Ft) (about 365.76 m) of waterfront and a minimum of 15 vessels per day that land their catch at their New Jersey location, Lund's is imperative to the US seafood chain. Recently, new construction was completed that would serve as a loading and packing house for the Lund's facility. Thomas Barry Marine Construction Inc, who has been working with Lund's Fisheries for the past 35 years continuously updating the business, was awarded the job of completing the new work. To complete this project, Thomas Barry partnered with International Construction Equipment, Inc. (ICE®) and rented an ICE® 14 Vibratory Hammer along with an ICE® 55 Clamp to drive two hundred-seventy 30-35' (Ft) timber piles to a depth of 30' (Ft.) to complete the substructure. Lund's also is making a $2 million investment in its scallop operations with the acquisition of a new tunnel freezer that will also be supported by this new foundation. 

Today, the Port of Cape May/Wildwood ranks among the top 25 ports in the country in commercial landings. Thomas Barry Marine Construction, Inc. has been a huge contributor to the growth of this port and Lund's Fisheries ongoing success. International Construction Equipment, Inc. (ICE®) is honored to have been a part of such an important and exciting project with Thomas Barry Inc. Great work to the entire Thomas Barry crew, keep on landing those "big fish"!
