PASCAGOULA, Miss., Aug. 25, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) held a graduation ceremony Saturday for graduates of Ingalls Shipbuilding’s Apprentice School. The ceremony celebrated the accomplishments of 45 students representing various crafts at Ingalls.


“Knowing that you’ve helped build these ships as they sail away and join the fleet should make you and your family proud—every day,” said Capt. Joe Tuite, commanding officer, Supervisor of Shipbuilding Gulf Coast, the ceremony’s featured speaker. “Every bolt, every hose and every pipe will have been carefully placed by you and the Ingalls team. As those banners in the shipyard say: Know that what you do most certainly matters. It matters to your partners at Supervisor of Shipbuilding Gulf Coast, who work alongside you to provide the Navy with the finest seaworthy ships. It matters to the parents of every sailor and every Marine, who trust their sons and daughters to your handiwork. And it matters to every American who sleeps better knowing our troops deploy with the most state-of-the-art vessels on the seas.”

Since 1952, the Apprentice School has produced more than 4,000 graduates in support of Ingalls’ operational needs. The program offers a comprehensive two- to four-year curriculum for students interested in shipbuilding careers.

“As you go to work next week as an apprentice graduate, I would like to challenge you to choose to make a difference and make sure what you do each day matters,” said Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias. “You have already chosen to start down the path to be an Ingalls leader, and your future is bright and full of tremendous opportunities. You are the future of Ingalls Shipbuilding. Ingalls is great, not just because of the facilities, but because of the people. The people make Ingalls special.”

More than 60 faculty and staff deliver 13 programs and over 120 course offerings to apprentices to gain not only the skills, knowledge and pride of workmanship, but also the educational foundation and personal qualities needed to fully meet the challenges of a shipbuilding career. Today more than 1,500 apprentice alumnae fill approximately 50 different types of jobs at Ingalls, from pipe welders to senior executives.

“The slogan ‘What you do today matters’ means the job you perform should last a lifetime,” said welder Jason Carter, the class’ outstanding apprentice of the year. “The quality you put down today might affect somebody’s life or a crew’s life somewhere in the future. We’re building ships for the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard to protect our country. That matters.”

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Jan. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) announced today that it has acquired The S.M. Stoller Corporation (Stoller), a leading provider of environmental, nuclear, and technical consulting and engineering services to the Department of Energy, Department of Defense and the private sector. The value of the transaction was not disclosed. Stoller is a privately held company and performs work in 29 states from 18 offices nationwide.

Stoller has provided environmental and technical support to the U.S. government and nuclear power industry for more than 54 years. It provides a full range of services in support of managing environmental issues, from highly complex multi-year remediation projects to short-term evaluations of local groundwater quality in anticipation of commercial construction.

“With this strategic acquisition, Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) is positioned for expanded growth within the DOE, environmental management and commercial nuclear services markets,” said HII Corporate Vice President and NNS President Matt Mulherin. “Stoller’s exceptional commitment to performance and safety are well recognized by the environmental management and remediation industry and are attributes that directly support our plan for continued growth within these markets. This is an important investment in the future of our company, and we are excited to welcome Stoller to our team.”

Stoller will be a wholly owned subsidiary of HII and will operate under its NNS division.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (Dec. 20, 2013) – Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) announced today that its Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division lent tons of support to the community by participating in three area charitable events.

Shipbuilders donated nearly 20,000 school supplies to benefit an estimated 1,000 area students, contributed $ 2 million to the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula, and recently delivered more than 20 metric tons of non-perishable food—5 tons heavier than an anchor on the aircraft carrier Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78)—to the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank.

“Heavy lifting is what we do at Newport News Shipbuilding, and our community relations efforts are no exception,” said Chavis Harris, NNS’ director, ethics, EEO and corporate citizenship. “We are thankful for our employees’ extraordinary giving spirit and the many opportunities we have to give back to the community. We hope our efforts will go a long way toward supporting a host of families across the Hampton Roads region.”

NNS shipbuilders donated everything from pencils and ball-point pens to erasers and paper for the shipyard’s annual “School Tools” campaign. The supplies were sorted and delivered in September to area departments of social services, Newport News Public Schools Administration and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula.

The United Way donation represents a combined contribution from the HII corporate office and its participating employees, as well as donations made by NNS and its participating employees. Organizations that benefit from the campaign include health and human service agencies across the region that address everything from hunger and homelessness to affordable childcare and services for the elderly.

More than half of the 20 tons of food donated to the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank came from one shipyard building comprising shipbuilders from the nuclear propulsion division. NNS nuclear engineer Bill McLaughlin helped to spearhead the effort.

“I like that this event straddles two holidays—taking us through one that reminds us to be thankful and leading us to one dedicated to the spirit of giving,” McLaughlin said. “We have a committed group of people who generously share their good fortune.”

In addition to the food donations, shipbuilders collected $11,000 for the foodbank.

“We can’t thank Newport News Shipbuilding enough for providing hope with food and money,” said Loretta Jones-Knauth, chief philanthropy officer for the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank. “More than 20 tons of food will stock the bare shelves at the Foodbank. The need is so great, and this single donation will make a huge impact in helping our neighbors in need this holiday season.”

PASCAGOULA, Miss. (Dec. 20, 2013) – Employees from Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (NYSE:HII) Ingalls Shipbuilding division teamed up to provide holiday gifts for 145 children as part of the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. In addition, Ingalls donated $1,500 to help with the remaining angels who were not adopted, with $500 of that raised by the company’s electrical department.

“It’s humbling to see the constant outpouring of volunteer service and giving from Ingalls’ employees,” said Edmond Hughes, Ingalls’ vice president of human resources and administration. “The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provided gifts for more than 1,500 children this year, and our shipbuilders helped play a part in making sure these kids have a great holiday season. In fact, some of our employees went above and beyond what is required and purchased extra gifts.”

The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program matches donors with children from qualified families unable to provide gifts and clothing for their children during the holidays. The Salvation Army provides a wish list for each angel. This year there were more than 1,500 angels to be adopted. Adopters of the angels purchase all or as many items from the wish list as possible. The angels vary in ages, and most gifts are items like clothes, jackets, electronic games and bicycles.

“Without our Jackson County community and companies like Ingalls, we could not do what we do for these families,” said Capt. Jenny Bailey, Jackson County Salvation Army Officer. “This is no small feat. Each angel receives at least $75 worth of merchandise, and because of Ingalls’ help, these families are going to be fully blessed this Christmas. We appreciate it so much.”

Ingalls employees also helped raise money and resources for several other organizations, including toys and money for the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program, 1,000 pounds of food for Our Daily Bread, and food and snacks for the Backpack buddies after-school program. The company’s Veterans Employee Resource Team (VERT) also sent 63 care packages to soldiers in Afghanistan.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Dec. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE:HII) announced today that its Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division has officially opened its new Apprentice School, located at 3101 Washington Ave. in downtown Newport News.

Apprentices, faculty and staff were joined today by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, U.S. Reps. Bobby Scott and Rob Wittman, Virginia Delegate Chris Jones, Newport News Mayor McKinley Price, HII President and CEO Mike Petters, NNS President Matt Mulherin, Armada Hoffler Holding Co. President and CEO Lou Haddad, and other business and community leaders at the front doors of the school for a celebratory event. A 13-foot tall bronze sculpture cast by Eastern Shore artist David H. Turner was also unveiled at the school’s entrance.

“What people ask me about more than almost anything else—besides maybe money and infrastructure—is: What are you going to do to sustain our workforce long-term?” Gov. McDonnell said. “This Apprentice School is really a great testament and a model for how to do it right, and community colleges and others around the state are beginning to see what’s happened here and use some of the fine programs here as a model for how to do vocational and career and technical training.”

Apprentice Sculpture Hero

The 90,000-square foot building triples the school’s instructional space with facilities that include eight computer labs, two video teleconferencing classrooms, a physics lab and a 600-seat gymnasium. The school currently accommodates about 850 apprentices and provides office and workspace for faculty, adjunct faculty and staff.

“While this facility looks mighty impressive from the outside, it’s what will take place inside that is most remarkable,” Mulherin said. “It’s the people—the students, the faculty, craft instructors and staff—who will bring it to life. They will charter a new and exciting course while honoring the traditions and shipbuilders who came before them.”

NNS partnered with Armada Hoffler, the City of Newport News and the Commonwealth of Virginia on the project, which includes the school, workforce housing, retail space and a parking garage.

“Investing in downtown Newport News was certainly the right decision for us,” Haddad said, “and we look forward to working with the city and Huntington Ingalls in the operation of these facilities and making further investments in order to fulfill our quest of transforming downtown into a vibrant place to live, work and play.”

Mayor Price added: “To the leadership of Huntington Ingalls, Newport News Shipbuilding, The Apprentice School and all of its students, faculty and alumni: Congratulations. This is a proud day for you, and we appreciate all you are doing to continue to train the next generation of those who will build good ships, and for making Newport News a place where great things are happening in advanced manufacturing and education.”

The Apprentice School accepts about 250 apprentices per year. The school offers four- to 8-year, tuition-free apprenticeships in 19 trades and eight optional advanced programs. Apprentices work a regular 40-hour week and are paid for all work, including time spent in academic classes. Through partnerships with Thomas Nelson Community College and Tidewater Community College, The Apprentice School’s academic program provides the opportunity to earn associate degrees in business administration, engineering and engineering technology.

“I think it’s fitting that The Apprentice School stands a short block from Huntington Avenue, which is also named after HII namesake Collis P. Huntington,” Petters said. “Huntington’s intention was to create not only a shipyard, but, as he said, ‘an industry which should be a continuing benefit to the people of Virginia.’ We are proud that Huntington’s vision is as much a reality today as it ever was, and we are proud that HII’s most important products are not ships, but the workforce that builds them.”
