Silver Ships Named Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year

Theodore, AL (Nov. 19, 2021) – Silver Ships, Inc. has been named as the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year.

A volunteer committee reviewed and evaluated all submissions and choose three finalists from information provided regarding: Business Growth, Operations and Impact; Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Business Strategy; Customer Service and Market Strategy; and Community Involvement.

“We are proud to be named as Small Business of the Year, and the recognition is a testament to our entire team’s hard work and commitment to our customers and community,” says Steven Clarke, CFO and co-owner of Silver Ships. “It is an exciting time in the marine industry and for our company, as we continue to build high quality aluminum workboats for customers across the United States and internationally.
