Our History

Carpenter Rigging & Supply Co., Inc. was founded by John L. Carpenter in 1950. The company was primarily engaged in the repair of shipboard gear as a sub-contractor to the shipyards in the Bay Area. Bernie Martin (pictured) joined the team in 1966 and in

1972, purchased control of Carpenter Rigging & Supply Co., Inc., and operations were expanded throughout California with the acquisition of nine other companies.

​In 1995, the various branches became DBA’s under The Carpenter Group and staff grew to handle the ever increasing workload of the ship repair and construction industries and other commercial work.

In 2008, Mr. Martin sold The Carpenter Group to Bruce Yoder, a longtime employee and the General Manager of American Rigging & Supply in San Diego. The Carpenter Group has consolidated operations to eight locations throughout California.
