General Dynamics NASSCO-Bremerton’s production and planning facilities were specifically designed to support U.S. Navy Ship Repair. Our 10,000 square-foot planning and engineering offices are located just steps away from Puget Sound Naval Shipyard’s main gate in Downtown Bremerton, WA. Our 20,000 square-foot production facility is located approximately three miles from the shipyard and houses a fully functional production shop (all types of welding, pipe fabrication, etc.) capable of fabricating and constructing a wide array of ships equipment to support our ship repair efforts in the Pacific Northwest. Our 10,000 square-foot warehouse (co-located with our production warehouse) is government approved and is used to store both GFM (Government Furnished Material) and CFM (Contractor Furnished Material).
