BY R U SS G AG E R // Family owned and managed, Traylor Bros. Inc. Working on water is a challenge for builds bridges, tunnels and marine structures like construction companies, and easing that task is the job of Thad Pirtle, vice president and equipment manager for Traylor Bros. Inc. Huge barges with various types of cranes are required for different projects, and it is Pirtle’s job to ensure the right equipment is at the right location at the right time. With a fleet of 100 barges ranging from 50 feet to 225 feet in length, 12 tugboats of 600 hp to 1,200 hp and 300 pontoons approximately 40 feet long and 5 to 7 feet deep, Pirtle practically could command a civil engineering navy if his fleet were all in one place. But the fleet is spread out throughout North America on rivers, the Great Lakes, oceans on both coasts and the Gulf of Mexico, depending on where projects are located. Family owned and managed, Traylor Bros. Inc. builds bridges, tunnels and marine structures such as sewage outfalls, along with deep-water container piers, -----------------------------------------------[ P R O F I L E ] Traylor Bros.
