Congressman Glen Thompson and Jeff Winkler-Congressman District Rep. joined Robert Dunn-General Dynamics/Electric Boat at the Electralloy facility on October 28th for a plant tour and presentation.
The purpose of the meeting was to provide an update on Electralloy’s participation in the Supply Chain to General Dynamics/Electric Boat for the Navy’s Nuclear Submarine Programs and to detail the importance of the program to national security.
The presentation included a brief overview of Electralloy’s capabilities and the materials supplied to the Navy’s Submarine Program. Robert Dunn-Government Relations Manager-General Dynamics Electric Boat then detailed the status of current programs for the Virginia Class & Ohio Class Programs including build rates, funding, and milestones.
“Congressman Thompson has been a strong advocate for the funding of the Submarine Programs,” stated Electralloy President Tracy Rudolph. “The program serves as a global nuclear deterrent, provides for the security of the United States and world peace, and has a favorable economic impact on the US Supply Chain. We were very pleased to host this august group and are very proud to be a participant in this vital program.”
The day also included an Electralloy employee Town Hall session with Congressman Thompson, covering the general state of the economy. Employees were able to direct questions and concerns to Congressman Thompson for his response.
