Aluminum for the Shipbuilding and Marine Industry

Aluminum offers wide-ranging benefits in the shipbuilding and marine industry, including durability, safety, high corrosion resistance, low maintenance, high strength-to-weight ratios, and, because it can be recycled, environmental responsibility. Pierce Aluminum is able to deliver all these advantages through its full inventory of aluminum sheet, plate, and extrusions in all commonly used alloys.
