IT TAKES A NATION
The nationwide industrial base continually invests in new equipment, technology, and a workforce of more than 60,000 to design and build ships that evolve with national security strategy. These supply-chain companies depend on a steady and predictable carrier-program schedule, which is appropriated and authorized by Congress.This year ACIBC is asking Congress for legislation that will enable the industry to supply the nation with the ships it requires.

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 $5.8 billion and over 60,000 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 2015-2019. Last updated March 2020.

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.
