The first ship built in what would become the United States was built in Maine more than 400 years ago. We carry on the same tradition here along the banks of the Kennebec River just a few miles from where that first ship was built. We are a valued community partner for the Mid Coast region and the state as a whole. We employ people from every county, strengthening communities, creating jobs and boosting local economies. We are the largest employer in Bath and one of the top three employers in Brunswick. We are a major economic engine for Maine and a key driver of the state’s production sector. Our product is in high demand. We are actively creating opportunities for Mainers through our job training, hiring, and use of Maine-based vendors.
