Philly Shipyard

State of the Art Shipbuilding

Philly Shipyard's state-of-the-art shipbuilding facility, the most modern in the United States, was designed to be a model of large-scale industrial efficiency and productivity. The Philly Shipyard campus spans 114 waterfront acres, employs more than 1,000 highly-skilled workers from the region, and is the leading supplier of oceangoing commercial ships in the U.S. “The location’s proximity to the trained workforce, our advanced facilities, and support from The Navy Yard combine to give us a competitive advantage in the industry,” notes Kristian Rokke, Philly Shipyard’s CEO. With over $2 billion of ships produced and ongoing contracts, Philly Shipyard will be busy delivering vessels for years to come. (Philly Shipyard was formerly known as Aker Philadelphia Shipyard)
