Marinette Marine Corporation, a privately owned shipbuilding company in northeast Wisconsin that builds naval and commercial vessels of steel, aluminum and wood to 400 feet, is offering an informative new free 24-page color brochure on the company's shipbuilding facilities and capabilities. Titled "Performance," the publication serves as a demonstration, using photos and explanatory text, of how Marinette Marine builds ships for its customers.
The brochure opens with a pre face—"Marinette Marine—More than A Shipyard"—which emphasizes that the company designs to specific requirements, builds within budget and delivers on time because, in addition to being a shipyard, they're a carefully structured, coordinated organization. Undergirding physical facilities and equipment is a finely tuned system for planning, organizing, scheduling and monitoring every phase of construction.
After the preface, the next four pages are devoted to "The Yard," with photos that include a bird'seye view, various phases of work in progress, launchings, and multiple vessels being constructed in assembly line fashion. Marinette Marine is described as covering 30 acres and stretching along 2,100 feet of the Menominee River. Over 300,000 square feet under roof permit yearround construction, and large fabrication shops, a wide erection area, and three launchways provide the space needed to construct the multiple vessels in assembly line fashion.
Separate cutting, fabrication, assembly and trade shops enable the constuction of ships in stages using prefabricated structural components and preassembled modules.
To maximize efficiency and accuracy, a computer is used for both lofting and cutting, and two numerically controlled plasma burning machines cut precisely dimensioned parts from plates up to 24 feet wide.
There is also an optical torch-cutting machine for smaller jobs. The text mentions that a rail spur gives the yard direct rail service, and to guard against shortages adequate supplies of steel are stored and standard inventories of other essential parts and materials are carried.
A section devoted to "The People" emphasizes that the yard has recruited experienced professionals with skills and talents covering all aspects of shipbuilding. A large, highly skilled work force is employed and new employees go through extensive training programs to receive certification in their trades. Various photos of company personnel in action are used to illustrate this portion.
The next six pages of the brochure are most illuminating in that they are given over to a discussion of how Marinette Marine goes about building ships for its customers. Titled "The System," it traces the building process from the initial idea through to the completed vessel.
This section is profusely illustrated with photos of discussion groups and of work in progress at various stages of the building pro- C6SS.
A final section, titled "The Record," contains photos of some of the 1,200 vessels Marinette Marine has built so far. In addition to these photos, the cover features a striking photo of the U.S. Naval Ship Mohawk.
