Avondale Awards

Washington Aluminum $1.5 Million In Contracts

The Washington Aluminum

Company, Inc. has been awarded over $1.5 million in contracts by

Avondale Industries, Inc. for alumi- num fabrications on fleet oilers un- der construction by the Louisiana builder. The two separate contracts cover the fabrication of eight ship- sets of portable stanchions and dun- nage systems and seven shipsets of accommodation ladders. "Washington Aluminum Compa- ny was involved in the original de- sign of aluminum accommodation ladders for the Navy in the late 1940s," said Robert Pickens, president of Washington Alumi- num. "We are truly pleased Avon- dale Industries has selected us for what we see as an important role in this TAO project."

The Washington Aluminum

Company has provided over 40 years of continuous service in the design and manufacture of products for the Navy.

The current project, according to marine customer service manager

Stephanie Koltko, includes dun- nage identified as "an overhead and deck track system with movable stanchions for munitions cargo con- tainment. The accommodation lad- ders feature an electrically operated hoist system for this TAO project."

Ms. Koltko commented further that "our welders are qualified to

MIL standard 248C and our QA/QC program is in accordance with MIL- 1-45208. Our shop floor team takes tremendous pride in the work they do for the Navy."
