About NNS Suppliers
Businesses that supply Newport News Shipbuilding can be found in nearly every state in America. More than 2,000 active suppliers support the construction of nuclear-powered submarines, construction and
mid-life overhaul of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers, ship repairs, maintenance of NNS facilities and numerous other operations. NNS spends an average of $1 billion annually with its suppliers, nearly half of which are small businesses.
The complexity of the work done at NNS demands a sophisticated and diverse group of suppliers from across the United States. NNS greatly appreciates our suppliers' contributions in building and maintaining the most complex ships in the world.
Since 1886, the ships built at Newport News Shipbuilding, like the American shipbuilders who built them, have served our nation in peace and war, in times of adversity and in times of abundance.
NNS is the nation's sole designer, builder and refueler of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and one of only two shipyards capable of designing and building nuclear-powered submarines.
The visitors guide includes directions to the main NNS office buildings, hotels, restaurants, maps of the shipyard, Newport News Airport map and Norfolk Airport map.
