Bayonne Drydock kicked off last year with the repair and drydocking of the U.S. Navy Ship, Pomeroy followed by the successful drydocking and repairs of the USNS Watkins. It closed the year with the completion of the USNS Seay; all were completed on time, with the Seay coming in ahead of schedule with work that included bowthruster overhaul repairs, blasting and painting and hull coatings. 
In addition to the Grey hulls, BDD serviced several commercial customers via drydock and pier side repairs.  Mike Cranston, President of BDD, said improved programs and initiatives in the areas of Management, Quality Assurance and Safety coupled with Innovative and strategic planning as part of the outcome in having another successful year.
“Bayonne Drydock has always been motivated by our motto to be the Drydock and Repair facility of choice by our customers with the emphasis ‘On Time and On Budget.’  BDD is proud of the improved programs that were put into place.  We don’t want to be complacent and we recognize that positive growth is essential to continued achievements.”
BDD’s approach to 2015 is continued improvement. “We are increasing staff to better service our customers and gearing up for facility improvements including a state-of-the-art Water Treatment System Environmental Upgrade,” said Cranston.
