SeaTrepid began life in 2003, based in Southeastern Pennsylvania, to continue ROV integration work performed for the US Coast Guard during Bob Christ’s tenure with VideoRay LLC (a company Bob co-founded in 1999). In 2003 through 2005, SeaTrepid performed extensive ROV consulting services for the USCG, the US Army, the US Navy’s Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport, RI (NPT NUWC) as well as operations and consulting with a host of large governmental and industry organizations.
In late-2005, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita ripped through the offshore oilfields of the Northern Gulf of Mexico requiring extensive cleanup and remediation work. The work was so intensive that SeaTrepid relocated its corporate offices to Hammond, Louisiana to better service its oil & gas customer base in the Gulf of Mexico.
In December 2007, SeaTrepid relocated to its new 6.25 acre campus in Robert, LA. In April 2009, SeaTrepid Louisiana LLC was renamed SeaTrepid International LLC to properly reflect the true international nature of its business operations.
