Commercial Shipbuilding Continues to Grow

Mobile Shipyard close up
Continuing to expand in the U.S. commercial shipbuilding market, customers include major shipping companies that supply the offshore energy industry, dredging operations and cargo transportation.

Having completed in 2012 the American Phoenix¸ a 616-foot-long chemical tanker, we are now under contract to build several additional vessels. The Jacksonville, Florida shipyard is on track to build a total of four platform supply vessels (PSVs) that will support offshore oil and gas drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. We're also building PSVs at the Mobile, Alabama shipyard, along with a large dredge and a couple of dump scows, which are barges that carry dredging material.

And we’re hiring in Mobile and Jacksonville. If you’re interested in joining our team, visit our jobs website for career opportunities.
