Marine Fabrication | Sustainable & Anti-Corrosive Composite Manufacturing


As a manufacturer of FRP composites, specializing in marine and waterway applications, we offer patented anti-corrosive technology that outperforms any solutions in the market. 

A recent 100-year, life cycle cost analysis on Tainter Gates was provided by USACE- and the results were staggering:

Traditional steel and concrete gates - $200,000,000

Our Patented FRP gates design - $20,000,000

Our FRP solution came in at 1/10th the cost. Further, we can manufacture 13 gates in 15 months. Steel and concrete would take up to 10 years.

This is one example of what differentiates us from marine infrastructure manufacturing companies around the world. 

Whether you’re looking for a barge builder, sea walls, lock gates, or docks for coastal infrastructure, CMSI is the trusted source for marine fabrication and design.

Solving the Corrosion Problem in Marine Infrastructure Designs

Utilizing traditional construction materials for naval infrastructure is costing billions of dollars annually in disruption in business, maintenance, and repairs. CMSI has the anti-corrosive solution for marine applications with patented composite construction solutions. With an expected 100-year lifespan, and minimal maintenance, our LCC is unmatched.

Our FRP designs for marine and coastal construction projects, paired with our patented technology provide:

  • An anti-corrosive application in an environment highly conducive to corrosion

  • Reduced disruption from downtime 

  • Minimal maintenance and repair over a 75–100-year lifespan

  • Significant reduction in LCC 

  • Reduced transportation costs

  • Reduction of time in installation

  • Significantly reduces CO2 emissions

CMSI Manufacturing of a Composite Ship Camel for Pearl Harbour

CMSI provided design, engineering, and manufacturing, for this project addressing the specifications, and performance expectations of our client.

These are single infusions, and VARTM process, weighing up to 8,000 lbs when complete. Each panel assembly can have up 800 individual parts including 196 individual stainless-steel plates. The stainless-steel plates are carefully drilled and tapped after infusion to provide the bolting features we need for mounting other external components in the final assembly. The final assembled product will use 196 panels of various sizes to complete two 235, 000 lb structures.


CMSI-Advancing Material Change.

One of our large single infusions using the VARTM process. This represents one of 196 components in a Navy Camel assembly. 

-Dimensions - 55’7” x 11’8” x 6” thickness

-Weight – 10,100 lbs.
