The Global Story
A small group of professional divers banded together in 1979 with the purpose of providing day-to-day diving, ship husbandry, marine construction, small vessel salvage and spill response services in the Puget Sound region. Their philosophy was simple: provide tough, smart, professional services for the maritime community, deliver outstanding customer service and focus on employee safety.
The company was incorporated in 1980 as Global Diving & Salvage, Inc., and it came to be known for its tenacious approach to every job. Each task was treated as the most important project on the books – from simple vessel surveys to fully-managed wreck removals. Tim Beaver, John Graham and five others brought this philosophy to life and established a company built on their own heritage of craftsmanship, professional partnership and environmental stewardship. They found success by developing, engaging and igniting the passion of their people.
Today the Global team serves clients throughout the world. Global believes that only when expertise is coupled with integrity can we be the proven solutions provider, resulting in confidence, value and safety for our customers.
Our mission is to stimulate professional pride and passion in our craft, and provide our clients and partners with safe and effective solutions to complex problems even under the most difficult conditions.
In 2016 the Global team is eager to unveil a new brand and website later this year. While the company will have an updated look and feel, Global has always – and will always – place safety above all else.
