Committee to tell the stories of naval power projection and the industrial base, a partnership between industry, Navy
— NMDF Chairman Kenneth Braithwaite, 77th Secretary of the Navy
WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The Navy Museum Development Foundation announces the formation of the Industrial Base Coalition Committee that will play an integral part in the development of the new National Museum of the United States Navy.
“The unwavering commitment to innovation, quality, and timely production within the industrial base has been imperative to the U.S. Navy’s historical naval dominance,” said NMDF Chairman the honorable Kenneth Braithwaite, 77th Secretary of the Navy.
“Throughout the development process, we’ve heard story after story from families who have supported the Navy in invaluable ways,” said NMDF Executive Director Bradley Carlson. “This Industrial Base Coalition Committee and its supporters will unveil the untold stories of the companies and workers ‘behind the sail’ to honor their countless contributions to our maritime heritage and national defense.”
Dawn Massa Stancavish, President/CEO & Chief Innovation Officer of Massa Products Corporation and Harry Epstein, CEO of Marine Electric Systems and Regional Board Member Northeast Region for The Aircraft Carrier Industrial Base Coalition (ACIBC), have agreed to co-chair our Industrial Base Coalition through the support of companies who serve as the backbone of support for the United States Navy.
“The collaborative efforts of various companies and organizations within the coalitions have played a pivotal role in providing the Navy with cutting-edge vessels, systems, and technologies,” said Massa Stancavish.
“Without the presence of the industrial base, the Navy would face severe limitations in its ability to power project, protect national interests, and maintain its historical position of naval superiority,” said Epstein. “Marine Electric is proud to be a part of that team and welcomes the opportunity to pay tribute to the U.S. Navy and warfighters that keep us safe.”
Together with industry leaders like Steven Dobos of Butler Weldments and Courtney Wolf of Serco North America, and others, this dedicated committee will help shape the story of the Industrial Base impact on the Navy’s history and future.
Massa Products Corporation recently hosted a salon style dinner in support of the Museum along with celebrity Chef Paul Wahlberg at his restaurant Alma Nove in Hingham, Mass.
