(GONSOULIN TOWING INCORPORATED, GONSOULIN ENTERPRISES INCORPORATED)
Founded in 1940 by two brothers, Willard, and Irvin LeBeouf. And in 1946, Earl Gonsoulin joined the company, and became an equal partner.
In 1957, the LeBeouf Towing Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Louisiana, and from that date forward the towing company grew from a two-vessel operation.
In 1968, the Gonsoulin family acquired the LeBeouf family stock resulting in the company being solely owned by the Gonsoulin family. The LeBeouf Brothers Towing Company name was retained under the new ownership.
