What We Do


SCA’s mission is to support and promote the American shipyard industry – including ship builders, ship repairers, and the associated supplier base – by providing strategic information and expertise for our membership and advocating on their behalf before Congress, Executive Branch and media.

"As a longstanding member of the Shipbuilders Council of America, I have been extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet and work with many of the leaders and innovators of the shipyard industry.  The U.S. shipyard industrial base that includes shipbuilders, ship repairers, machinery and components suppliers, and various other associated companies, has met many challenges from building the most sophisticated and complex Navy and Coast Guard in the world to building and maintaining the critical commercial vessels that keep domestic commerce and trade moving as a maritime nation.  The SCA provides a singular voice advocating for issues and policies of common concern for the strength of the entire shipyard industrial base."
