A submarine supplier recruitment event will be held May 1 and 2, 2019 at the Jekyll Island Convention Center.
The conference is being hosted by the Camden County Joint Development Authority and sponsored by the Submarine Industrial Base Council (SIBC) which represents 5,000 companies in nearly all 50 States producing components used to manufacture two Virginia-class attack submarines per year.
Suppliers who are interested in learning more about opportunities associated with the upcoming construction of the Columbia-class ballistic missile submarine are encouraged to attend.
This event is particularly appropriate for:
- Established manufacturing companies in the Southeastern region with experience fulfilling Department of Defense (DoD) contracts for Mil-Spec manufactured components.
- Established companies without DoD contract experience are also encouraged to attend in order to learn how to become a sub tier supplier to a SIBC supplier and expand the market share for your products.
Features of the supplier conference include a panel session featuring representatives from General Dynamics-Electric Boat and Huntington Ingalls Industries-Newport News Shipbuilding and a panel consisting of several existing SIBC suppliers in the Southeast Region. Each panel will discuss the unique requirements and challenges potential suppliers will face and the process to become a component supplier.
