Interested in Joining Us?

A love for what you do can put you on the road to success. But, it isn’t always enough to get you where you want to be. Let’s take your journey to the next level. We are looking for:

  • Small businesses that provide ship repair services (government or commercial), and small boat repairs.
  • Hands-on industry experts who possess management/leadership skills, expertise, education, and a minimum of 10-years of experience in the fabrication, ship repair and small boat services.

A good culture fit is important on both sides. If you have an existing company or a solid plan to build one, help us learn more by filling out the contact form using the link below.

A Mutual Appreciation

Kurt Manthei, owner of Jacksonville Machine and Repair, LLC (JMR), says that partnering with S23 allowed him instant access to additional resources and the opportunity to double their manpower in the first 30 days and grow 40% in the first year of acquisition.

“My initial fears of working for someone after owning my own company for 20 years were quickly quelled,” says Manthei. “I feel very comfortable in knowing that S23 is the company that can help me continue my own growth as well as seeing JMR prosper and continue to support the relationships that I built as well as building new ones in additional markets.”
