Since 1988, the Navy Metalworking Center (NMC) has supported the Navy's evolving needs by developing and transitioning innovative metalworking and manufacturing solutions. To reduce total ownership cost, NMC works with government and industry to develop and optimize metalworking and manufacturing processes and to implement the solutions in the U.S. industrial base. NMC conducts ship and air projects that incorporate advanced metalworking technologies, additive manufacturing, joining technologies, manufacturing process optimization, manufacturing tool development, advanced metrology and inspection technologies, and coatings application and removal. The JDMTP has recognized NMC for its outstanding record of developing technology solutions that are implemented on weapons systems. NMC has also earned DoD ManTech recognition through 3 Achievement Awards, 1 award finalist designation, and 3 award nominations over the past 7 years. NMC is operated by Concurrent Technologies Corporation.
