About Us

In 1968, after acquiring many years of experience and extensive knowledge of the requirements of stevedore and steamship companies, Conrad Hardin “Connie” formed his own company – Ancon Marine Supply and Salvage Co.  His aim was to provide the Long Beach and Los Angeles harbors with a first class, full-service organization for shipping companies, cruise lines and other seaport customers.  Over the years, he was able to establish Ancon as a dynamic, growing business, to supply general marine equipment and provides a multitude of services.

Connie realized that Ancon had to keep pace with the changing times and progressive methods being implemented by the harbors and industry.  He was, therefore, constantly evaluating customers’ needs and was ever ready to diversify Ancon's base of operations to provide the appropriate service.  Several divisions spawned from Connie’s forward thinking approach to business and created what we now know as Ancon Marine, Inc.  These include Ancon Environmental, Ancon Transportation, and Ancon Marine.
