Diamond Services was founded in 1962 by Wallace Carline, a pioneer of the offshore oil & gas services industry in the Gulf of Mexico. In the ensuing decades, the company distinguished itself as an outstanding services provider, expanding into the fields of dredging, pile driving, salvage work, fabrication, equipment & barge rental, and dock loading services. In the 1980s, Diamond Services operated a subsidiary in Peru to lend its expertise to the nascent oil and gas industry in South America. In 1994, the company had the distinction of building and operating the first waterjet crew boat in the Gulf of Mexico, the beginning of a fleet which would grow to 11 such boats by the early 2000s.
After leading the company through over five decades of consistent growth and a sustained exceptional reputation, Mr. Carline passed away on December 28, 2014. He left behind him a team of experienced professionals and a culture of cost-effective, service-oriented, and safety-minded operations that continue to guide Diamond Services through today’s economy and tomorrow’s changing world.
Diamond Services is still a family-run operation, with Mr. Carline’s daughter Paula Swiber taking his place as President and his grandson, Stephen Swiber, serving as Executive Vice President
