Modular Construction Taken to New Heights
ACE Marine located in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is a state-of-the-art, climate-controlled aluminum construction facility. Purpose designed for assembly line manufacturing of aluminum vessels, the facility uses innovative LEAN manufacturing techniques and process to construct high quality small boats and modular products for US government customers. Efficiencies in production are achieved by allowing modules to be pre-outfitted to a very high degree while internal compartments are still very accessible. A 50% production efficiency was achieved during the recent highly successful USCG Response Boat – Medium (RB-M) Program through the use of these processes.
Using mission focused designs, proven program management and advanced production techniques, ACE is able to produce new vessel designs and modules at low risk and high quality at affordable prices. As a US subsidiary to global parent, Fincantieri, the fourth largest shipbuilder in the world, FMG has been able to develop strategic partnerships with various boat builders and design companies to offer an impressive array of mission focused boats and vessels to meet virtually any requirement.
In addition to the USCG RB-M Program, the ACE Marine facility is currently building aluminum superstructure panels and modules for the Navy’s LCS-1 Freedom Class Littoral Combat Ship (LCS).
