Avondale draws on its past to fabricate America's future.

When heavy industry was being written off as passe in America, the executive team of Avondale Industries,

Inc., went quietly about the business of securing a bright future in heavy, industrial manufacturing.

Avondale first strengthened its traditional leadership position as the na- tion's finest marine fabricator by adopting the leading edge technology... modular construction and assembly.

Avondale mastered the technology and then sought ways to maximize its value, applying it successfully to diverse land-based industries.

Today, heavy industry is back in style because critical systems for transpor- tation, defense, electric power and environ- mental protection need upgrading and expanding... now.

Because of extraordinary foresight and aggressive action, Avondale today provides components and complete facili- ties to upgrade the country's infrastructure quickly and inexpensively.

Avondale is refabricating America.
