For more than 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's projects are focused on the Navy's mission to reduce total ownership cost and develop solutions that incorporate advanced metalworking, prototype tool development, coatings application/removal, manufacturing process optimization, joining technologies, and advanced metrology and inspection technologies. 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. NMC is operated by Concurrent Technologies Corporation, an independent, nonprofit organization located in Johnstown, PA.
