Aluminum Welder (Chesapeake, VA)

Serving as a global leader in composite boat manufacturing since 1957, Willard Marine, Inc. is a recognized pioneer in the design and construction of high performance boats. In the 1980s, Willard Marine expanded its focus from recreational and commercial use to include military, law enforcement and public safety requirements. With over 50 years of design, engineering and manufacturing experience, repeat customers include the US Navy, US Coast Guard, Homeland Security, NOAA, Law Enforcement Agencies, and foreign governments alike. These are the most challenging customers in the world and represent the most demanding requirements. In response, Willard Marine boats have an unsurpassed record of reliable and durable performance under the most demanding conditions. It is no accident that the US Navy has placed Willard Marine RIBs on almost every significant surface ship in its fleet, more RIBs than all our competitors combined.
