Huntington Ingalls Newport News Shipyard
Setting a new benchmark for parts Purchasing

On-site Parts and Support

The Huntington Ingalls Newport News Shipyard recognized the vast benefits of a privatized parts operation. They needed an industry expert to help with this—Tidewater Fleet Supply showed them why we’re one of the nation’s leading independent parts distributors.


The Challenge

It wasn’t just operational inefficiencies. The Huntington Ingalls Newport News Shipyard needed expert guidance and hands-on help with the right parts for an ever-changing assortment of vehicles and equipment, the prompt delivery of those parts, and finding ways to better their bottom line.

The Solution

Tidewater Fleet Supply seamlessly took over for the previous contracting organization and immediately applied our tried-and-tested Integrated Supply approach. We provided parts and people on-site, so that the Huntington Ingalls Newport News Shipyard not only had prompt delivery of in-demand parts, but also convenient access to a point of contact when they needed expert guidance and customer service. With our experienced and ASE certified parts specialists working shoulder to shoulder with this customer, we were able to react to their unique needs in real-time.

The Results

Tidewater Fleet Supply helped the Huntington Ingalls Newport News Shipyard save a considerable amount of money by lowering their level of stock and purchasing directly from manufacturers. That’s not all: by reducing downtime through prompt delivery, sometimes up to nine times a day, we were able to help keep their fleet running on time, so that their customers didn’t have to wait.
