AMSG has been in business for 36 years, has approximately 200 employees, and has offices in Alaska, Hawaii, and California. The primary business sectors are the oil & gas industry, government agencies, telecommunications companies, and marine services industry.

The AMSG Management Team consists of the following:

American Marine Corporation is a marine service company that delivers services for commercial diving, marine salvage, marine vessel inspection and repair, underwater inspections and photography, and marine construction, and also as operates a fleet of crew boats, work boats, construction barges, and tug boats. AMC marine construction projects have ranged from pier and breakwater construction, to harbor dredging, and ocean outfall installation and repair. In addition AMC constructs, inspects, repairs and maintains marine structures including pipelines and offshore platforms.

American Hyperbaric Centers provides hyperbaric chambers and highly trained technicians to support the diving operations, and provides hyperbaric medical services for the medical community.

Pacific Environmental Corporation provides oil spill and hazardous materials emergency response, cleanup, and environmental remediation services. PENCO spill responders and emergency response technicians are highly trained, certified, and qualified to respond to even the most difficult oil and chemical spills and hazardous waste operations.

A key principle of the American Marine Services Group mission statement is “Excellence in Operations” which includes health, safety, and environmental performance excellence. AMSG recognizes that its employees are a key asset of the organization, and as an oil spill response organization embraces its role as a steward and protector of the environment. AMSG therefore strongly emphasizes HSSE accountability at all levels in its organization.

AMSG has received a number of awards over the years, and for 2009 received the Green Star Award for achieving Green Star’s energy efficiency, waste reduction, and pollution prevention standards, and also received the National Safety Council’s 2009 Occupational Excellence Achievement Award and the Safety Leadership Award for having a recordable injury rate half that of the industry average, and for a perfect safety record for the last two years with zero OSHA recordable occupational injuries or illnesses. The AMSG Diving Operations division for American Marine Corporation-Alaska is the highest risk operation in the company, given its requirement for work in zero visibility arctic sea conditions. However, American Marine Corporation-Alaska in 2009 reached a milestone of fifteen years without a diving-related injury or illness, thereby demonstrating that AMSG is truly committed to health, safety, and environmental performance excellence.

AMSG received the Association of General Contractors Superior Performance Awards in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008. The 2008 award was for the icebreaker installation on Tyonek Platform in Cook Inlet, the 2007 award was for the Kodiac-Kenai subsea fiber-optic cable repair, the 2006 award was for dredging and restoration for the Sitka Blue Lake, Hydroelectric Project, and the 2005 award was for a subsea pipeline replacement project for Tesoro. In 2006 AMSG also received the MARSH Excellence in Safety award.
