A NATION OF RESILIANCE AND IMPACT

Today’s U.S. Navy aircraft carriers are the stunning result of over 2,000 companies in 46 states performing $8.8 billion worth of work. These businesses provide the parts that make these ships an unmatched expression of military power—capable of delivering sustained and overwhelming warfighting force around the globe.

MORE FORD MILESTONES
In recent months, USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) has made some tremendous progress in her Post Delivery Trials and received great feedback from her commanding officer Capt. J.J. Cummings, Rear Adm. Clapperton, Commander of Strike Group 12 and others. As the flagship in her class, CVN 78 is proving that the new Ford class flight deck design and weapons capabilities are critical to deliverying the agility, lethality, and flexibility that the Navy needs in their fleet.

WHO WE ARE

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.

WHAT WE DO

We seek to preserve the strength of the aircraft carrier force and promote the value of the industrial base as a vital part of the nation’s overall defense structure. We are advocates for not only increased congressional funding for carrier programs, but for the thousands of American jobs supported by this funding.

WHAT WE STAND FOR

Aircraft carriers are built and maintained with parts built by over 2,000 businesses spread out across the United States – helping inject $8.8 billion and over 92,000 jobs into communities across the country. Stability in aircraft carrier programs is critical not only to our national security, but also to the shipbuilding industrial base as well.

Data reflects spending between 2016-2020. Last updated March 2021.

OUR IMPACT

ACIBC member companies are making a difference across the country, creating tens of thousands of jobs and helping keep Americans safe by supplying the Navy with parts it needs to build aircraft carriers.
