Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA) is the national trade association representing the U.S. shipyard industry. 

SCA members constitute the shipyard industrial base that builds, repairs, maintains and modernizes U.S. Navy ships and craft, U.S. Coast Guard vessels of all sizes, as well as vessels for other U.S. government agencies. In addition, SCA members build, repair and service America's fleet of commercial vessels. In addition, SCA represents the critical supplier companies that are the foundation for our shipyard industrial base providing the necessary equipment, services and engineering for our commercial and government shipbuilders and ship repairers.
