General Dynamics Bath Iron Works

Bath Iron Works builds some of the world’s most formidable ships. Since 1884, we have delivered more than 425 ships to the world’s naval and commercial fleets. Today, Bath Iron Works is building naval ships with the same dedication. We are the lead designer and builder of the Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, one of the most technologically advanced and capable surface combatants ever built. We are also one of the partners for the Zumwalt class, the Navy's next-generation, multi-mission naval surface combatant.

Bath Iron Works is the leader in surface ship design and construction with a reputation for innovation and quality that sets the standards for the industry. Our products are the most technologically advanced naval ships in the world.
