GD Electronic Boat Summit

  US Congressman Joe Courtney, U.S. Department of Commerce, DECD, UCONN and CCAT hosted the General Dynamics Electric Boat  Potential Supplier Summit on June 16, 2014, at the UCONN Avery Point Campus.At this event, Connecticut suppliers learned about opportunities to work within the Electric Boat supply chain. Electric Boat is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, headquartered in Groton, CT, that has been the primary builder of United States submarines for the last 114 years.

  Electric Boat’s vision is to be the preferred provider for concept development, engineering and design, construction, modernization, and sustainment for all U.S. Navy submarine programs, nuclear propulsion plants, and undersea platform systems integration.Small and mid-sized manufacturers had an opportunity to learn about EB’s current needs, understand how to get into EB’s supply chain, and were able to meet with EB supply chain executives and procurement managers.
