General Dynamics NASSCO celebrated the grand opening of its new location in Bremerton, Wash., yesterday. The facility will support the company’s recently-awarded contract to repair and maintain U.S. Navy aircraft carriers home-ported in and visiting Bremerton and Everett, Wash.

Attendees at the ribbon-cutting ceremony included U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer, City of Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent, Kitsap County Commissioners, Kitsap economic and business leaders, NASSCO leadership and more.

“We feel right at home here in Bremerton. This community has done a fine job in making us feel welcome,” said Jeff Brooks, a General Dynamics NASSCO senior general manager assigned to the Bremerton operation. “We look forward to providing high-quality repair and maintenance services as part of our partnership with and commitment to the U.S. Navy.”

The Bremerton location is the newest addition to General Dynamics NASSCO’s bi-coastal network of shipyards. Other shipyards include its main shipyard in San Diego, NASSCO-Norfolk (Norfolk, Va.) and NASSCO-Mayport (Jacksonville, Fla.).
