For 25 years, the Navy Metalworking Center (NMC) has supported the Navy's evolving needs by developing and transitioning innovative metalworking and manufacturing solutions. Currently, NMC conducts projects that improve manufacturing and shipyard processes by developing solutions that incorporate advanced metalworking, joining and coatings technologies, as well as design for manufacturability tools. Since it was established as a ManTech Center of Excellence in 1988, NMC and its government and industry partners have driven advanced manufacturing technologies from research and development to application on Navy and other military weapon systems. Moving forward, NMC remains committed to meeting the Navy's critical need to reduce total ownership cost through advanced metalworking solutions for naval systems that go in harm's way. NMC is operated by Concurrent Technologies Corporation, an independent, nonprofit organization located in Johnstown, PA.
