Brochure Available On Norshipco's Three Expanded Shipyards

The expanding capabilities of Norfolk Shipbuilding & Drydock Corporation's three shipyards located in Norfolk, Va., are described and pictured in a recently published four-color brochure. Established 60 years ago, Norshipco has grown into a threeyard "ship repair city" with a work force of more than 3,300. It has comprehensive in-house capability for ship repair, conversion, and new construction, and a range of mobile services for many types of repair work on vessels outside the shipyards.

Two of the Norshipco yards— Berkley and Brambleton—are located on branches of the Elizabeth River; the Southern plant is on the Eastern Branch of Norfolk Harbor. Berkley, the largest plant, is for work on major oceangoing vessels, and is the site of major expanded facilities including the giant new floating drydock, concrete pier, and hammerhead crane.

For a free copy of the new brochure write to Carlos E. Agnese, Dept. MR, Norfolk Shipbuilding & Drydock, P.O. Box 2100, Norfolk, VA 23501.
