About the Coalition
The Aircraft Carrier Industrial Base Coalition (ACIBC) represents businesses that supply parts, equipment and services for the construction and maintenance of U.S. Navy aircraft carriers. Established in 2004, ACIBC seeks to preserve the strength of the aircraft carrier force and promote the value of the aircraft carrier industrial base as a vital part of the nation's overall defense structure.
ACIBC businesses provide all the valves, wiring, steel, motors, and thousands of other parts that make these ships the most technologically advanced ships in the world.
In total, more than 2,000 small, mid-sized and large businesses from 46 states, and 284 congressional districts, contribute parts, services and support to the construction and maintenance of U.S. Navy aircraft carriers.
