Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding breaks ground on new machinery shop

You will see a newer and safer building for its employees at Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding pop up over the next year. With dozens of government officials, employees, and community members looking on, Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding broke ground on what will be known as Building 110, home to its new machinery shop.

The new structure will replace its current setup, two different aging structures. By putting all of its operations under one larger roof, the hope is it will be a more contained and efficient shop with updated equipment like a five-ton overhead bridge crane and a 30-ton overhead crane. The new building will also contain offices, restrooms, a tool room complex, and a lunchroom. Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding Vice President and General Manager Craig Perciavalle told the crowd about the importance the new building will have with its growing operations.

Sturgeon Bay Mayor David Ward thanked Perciavalle and Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding for their commitment to the city.

The new structure will be built by A.C.E. Building Service out of Manitowoc, Wis., which has worked with the shipyard for over 50 years. The project is expected to be finished ahead of next year’s Winter Fleet.
