“Whatever it Takes”


In March 2011, two long-established Ohio River marine operations – Greater Cincinnati Marine and Bray Marine – merged to create Carlisle & Bray Enterprises, LLC, the parent company to C&B Marine, C&B Energy Services, and C&B Repair and Maintenance. Through these companies, we provide a full array of marine- and land-based services, as well as consulting and inspection capabilities, giving our customers total confidence and peace-of-mind that we can meet any need that may arise. From towing, fleeting, and shifting on the Ohio River with C&B Marine to utility byproduct management and movement with C&B Energy Services and dry-dock repair services with C&B Repair and Maintenance, the Carlisle & Bray Enterprises family of companies provides unmatched customer service to meet any of your needs.

Our companies bring a team with years of experience working on the Ohio River and its tributaries. While safety is at the forefront of everything that we do, we also know that customer service is of paramount importance. That’s why our motto at Carlisle & Bray is “whatever it takes.”

C&B is fully committed to the messages and missions of Waterways Council Inc., American Waterways Operators, RiverWorks Discovery, The Seamen’s Church Institute, and Living Lands & Waters.
