Vigor Alaska operates the Ketchikan Shipyard on behalf of the City of Ketchikan, the Ketchikan Gateway Borough, the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority – and on behalf of our customers.
We offer top-notch and expanding facilities in southeastern Alaska, in our state’s fifth largest city along the famed Inland Passage. Our experience, like the waters around us, runs deep.
We have great production equipment and tooling, but the true success of the Ketchikan Shipyard and Vigor Alaska can be attributed to our people. Our production and management teams are built on a core of Alaskan workers who take extreme pride in our work. Our productivity is unrivaled.
As Alaskans, we have firsthand experience with the challenging conditions that vessels and crews encounter. We depend on those who sail to transport our supplies and our friends and families. Knowledge of vessels and the harsh conditions of our long coastline and maritime communities gives us an exceptional commitment to quality ship repair and construction. To that end, we continually increase our skills and capabilities for ship repair, new vessel construction, and large fabrication projects.
Whether you are a customer, an employee, a supplier/vendor, or subcontractor, together we can build or repair vessels safer, faster, better, and at lower cost.
