Vinyard Re-elected to SCA Chair

Friday, April 29, 2005
On April 21, 2005, Herschel T. Vinyard, Jr., Vice President of Atlantic Marine Holding Company, was re-elected Chairman of the Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA). Donald T. “Boysie” Bollinger, CEO of Bollinger Shipyards, Inc., Lockport, LA, was elected Vice Chairman. The elections occurred during the annual SCA Spring Meeting held in Arlington, VA.

SCA is the largest and most broadly-based national trade association representing the U.S. shipyard industry. SCA members build, repair and service America's fleet of commercial vessels. SCA members constitute the shipyard industrial base that maintains and repairs Navy combatant ships and other government craft, as well as builds small and midsized vessels for the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy and other government agencies. The Council represents 44 companies that own and operate over 100 shipyards, with facilities on all three U.S. coasts, the Great Lakes, the inland waterways system and Hawaii. SCA also represents 27 affiliate members that provide goods and services to the shipyard industry. Upon his election, Mr. Vinyard commented that, “I am pleased to have the opportunity to continue to serve the nation’s shipyard industry at such a critical time. For the first time in several years, we have united the competitive shipbuilding industry with the ship repair yards that maintain America’s military fleet. I believe our industry, under the SCA umbrella, is ready to tackle the challenges that face America’s shipyards in the 21st Century.”

SCA President Allen Walker stated, “The U.S. shipyard industry is, indeed, fortunate to have men like Herschel Vinyard and Boysie Bollinger who are willing to give of their time and talents for the good of industry as a whole. I am confident that with their leadership and the commitment of SCA’s Board of Directors the domestic shipyard industry is in good hands.”
