Navy Secretary Ray Mabus Visits HII’s Ingalls Shipyard

hii-ray-mabus-visitU.S. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus has visited Huntington Ingalls Industries‘ Ingalls Shipbuilding division in Mississippi to address the shipyard’s leaders and staff workers.

HII said Friday Mabus was accompanied by Brian Cuccias, Ingalls Shipbuilding president, and Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-Mississippi) during his tour of the shipyard.

Ingalls Shipbuilding-built vessels support the Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps as they conduct missions and operations, Mabus stated.

“Ingalls is pleased to have had the opportunity to host Secretary Mabus, a native Mississippian, today as he spoke to our workforce about the important role they play in America’s national security,” said Cuccias.

He added that HII constructs four classes of ships simultaneously.
