Carolina Marine Terminal, Inc. is the vision of Mike McCarley and Kevin Walker. The owners of Atlantic Diving & Marine Contractors, Inc. employed their marine construction expertise to build and operate CMT as a private bulk marine terminal.
(CMT) is a privately owned, nonunion bulk marine cargo terminal with rail access located in Wilmington, North Carolina.
CMT was founded by Kevin G. Walker and Michael E. McCarley in 2005. As owners of Atlantic Diving and Marine Contractors Inc. (ADMCI) they constructed and maintained private, state, and military marine ports facilities and infrastructure since 1986. Their vision to construct a private port, Carolina Marine Terminal, emerged from this experience.
ADMCI served as the general contractor and project manager for the planning and construction of Carolina Marine Terminal. ADMCI performed much of the work with their own crews including land and marine pile driving, dock construction, concrete foundation installations and some of the equipment erection. Today, ADMCI continues to provide the resources for in-house expansions and maintenance of the terminal facility. Many of the employees who maintain and operate the terminal were engaged in its construction providing a personal sense of ownership in their duties.
CMT works closely with their I.T. Provider, Hooks Systems of Wilmington and Myrtle Beach, utilizing Hooks Systems RemoteCare 24 x 7 monitoring and helpdesk services.
