Bath Iron Works, Bath ME

Most recent update: January 24, 2018.


Bath Iron Works (BIW) was established as an iron foundry in 1826 and expanded into shipbuilding by acquiring Goss Marine Iron Works in 1888.  The yard was a major builder of destroyers in both wars and is now recognized as the world's leading builder of destroyers and similar surface combatants.  Ownership has changed hands several times and it has now been part of General Dynamics since 1995.  Visit the shipyard at www.biw.com and see it from the air on Google here.
