Heddle Marine, a leading Canadian ship repair and marine service provider, has selected David Pratt & Associates (DPA) to provide government relations, communications and marketing support.
“We are very excited and energized to have the opportunity to work with a company like Heddle Marine,” said David Pratt, Principal of DPA. “Heddle is a very dynamic company in a very dynamic industry sector,” said Pratt.
