Established in 1982 to increase industry cooperation and cohesiveness and create greater public awareness and understanding of the industry's issues, the Port of San Diego Ship Repair Association represents more than 150 San Diego-area companies engaged in ship repair, conversion, overhaul and modernization. Approximately 70 percent of the work performed is on United States Navy and Defense Contracts.
Association member companies provide a full range of services, from maintenance, conversion, overhaul and ship repair, to specialized crafts such as welding, industrial painting, pipefitting, shipfitting, electrical work, sand blasting, carpentry and rigging, to name just a few. Member companies often join forces on major projects in order to share labor and resources for the most timely, efficient completion of jobs. All work is performed to the highest quality standards (many of the member companies are ISO Certified for quality and environmental protection), with priorities placed on employee and customer safety, protection of the environment, employee training and advancement opportunities and customer satisfaction.
In addition to the crucial services provided for the Navy fleet and commercial vessels, Association member companies add more than 14,000 jobs to the San Diego economy, both directly and through subcontractors and suppliers.
