About Us

From our humble beginnings of building docks in my father’s backyard on Lake Hartwell, we have steadily grown to be one of the largest marine contractors in the Southeast. However, with this tremendous growth we have never wavered from our original business concept of “Total Customer Satisfaction.”

Custom Dock Systems, Inc. has always been the front-runner in marine construction, offering the newest, most innovative products, including our own custom-built line of boat lifts. All our products are chosen to enhance the aesthetics of and add durability to our dock systems. Being lake dwellers and avid lake enthusiasts, we are constantly testing new products on our own docks before we offer them to our valued customers.

We offer you a reputation for providing the highest quality construction of boat docks, lifts and accessories – a reputation confirmed by over forty years and three generations of marine service to the Upstate lakes. Please view our company timeline below to see how we've grown over the years to meet our customers needs and expectations... Use your mouse to scroll left or right.

Company Timeline

Custom Dock Systems, Inc. has been designing, fabricating, and installing quality dock structures since 1968.

Custom Dock Systems, Inc. was originally known as Custom Steel and Wood, Inc. With the addition of aluminum dock products and an array of flooring options, we felt the old name did not represent the dock structures we build today.

Custom Dock Systems, Inc. owns and operates two state-of-the-art dock-construction facilities with over fifty thousand square feet of fabrication area to meet your needs. One facility is specifically designed for handling, storing, and welding all-aluminum docks and related aluminum products. The other facility is designed for steel welding and fabrication. Both facilities are capable of producing structures of any size, from the simple, single-slip private dock to the multi-slip marina project.

We have built thousands of private docks and marina slips for developments you trust for quality, such as The Reserve, Crescent Communities, and The Cliffs Communities. Each slip was custom built to the owner’s specifications and engineered to withstand all the elements of the property location. We have never sold the cookie-cutter-style dock that can be pulled from a prebuilt inventory.

It is with pleasure and pride that we offer you our vast experience and knowledge of marine structures, related products, and your lake’s permitting process. So when you are ready for that custom dock system, please allow us to offer you our no-cost, no-obligation, written price quotation on all your lakefront needs. Please give us a call at 800.706.7397 or email us today and let us turn your dream into reality.

Going, Going, GONE!

Custom Docks Systems, Inc. has successfully gone green and is now considered a green company. All our aluminum, steel and decking scraps are being recycled through our waste management company, A.C.E. Environmental, Inc. Furthermore, our management team only buys Brazilian Hardwoods from legal companies. This ensures the materials are not being harvested illegally in South America.

Being dock connoisseurs, we focus on providing custom docks to our customers allowing them to enjoy the outdoor activities offered on the water. Please join us in helping to recycle and save the environment so we will all be able to enjoy the lake for many years to come.
