Elliott Bay Design Group Opens Office in Ketchikan
September 28, 2013
Elliott Bay Design Group is a full service vessel design and engineering firm offering naval architecture, marine engineering and production support services to owners, operators and shipyards across the country. Elliott Bay Design Group stated in a news release it is the preferred service provider for a number of Alaska-based companies with which it shares long-standing relationships.
Elliott Bay Design Group (EBDG) is a member of the Ketchikan Marine Industry Council, sharing that body's commitment to expanding Ketchikan's marine industrial capacity. The Ketchikan Marine Industry Council's diverse membership represents a cross section of Ketchikan's business and civic leaders and highlights the city's many strengths and capabilities.
Said Brian King, EBDG VP of engineering, "This move enables us to better serve our Alaska clients and to establish new relationships and deepen existing ones. We hope to enjoy beneficial business partnerships in the state for some time to come."
The new office is located in Ketchikan's Ward Cove community at 7559 North Tongass Highway and will serve as EBDG's base of operations within the state. This recent move represents months of strategic planning and occurs in alignment with the company's stated goals to provide support to clients operating within Alaska and to serve as a regional resource for quick reaction field engineering.
EBDG's flagship office in Seattle was founded in December 1987 when three partners purchased the assets of a sixty-year-old naval architecture firm, Nickum & Spaulding Associates, Inc. In 2006, the employee-owned enterprise established a presence on the Gulf Coast and today continues to support clients across the United States. Of late, the company has experienced steady growth acquiring talent at the rate of several hires a month since the beginning of 2013.
Elliott Bay Design Group LLC is an employee-owned company with offices in Seattle, New Orleans, and now in Ketchikan providing naval architecture, marine engineering and production support services on behalf of owners, operators and shipyards across the country.
