Vigor Alaska

Vigor Industrial announced today that it has renamed two of the company’s subsidiaries. U.S. Fab, Vigor’s fabrication and shipbuilding subsidiary, is now Vigor Fab. Alaska Ship and Drydock, which operates the Ketchikan shipyard in Alaska, is now Vigor Alaska.

“It’s about better serving our customers,” explained Frank Foti, president and CEO of Vigor Industrial. “The new names not only simplify things for customers dealing with Vigor, they better reflect the reality that no matter which subsidiary customers are working with, they can count on Vigor’s high level of craftsmanship and customer service.”

Vigor Fab and Vigor Alaska join three other subsidiaries under the Vigor name:

•Vigor Shipyards, which provides repair, maintenance and modernization services to the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard
•Vigor Marine, which provides fixed-price ship repair, refit and modernization services to commercial customers
•Vigor Machine, which provides machining work for a variety of industrial applications, including turbines and generators

The changes apply to the names only and do not alter the operating structures of either subsidiary. The new names go into effect immediately.
