In an industry where U.S. companies face considerable competition from foreign markets and production is extremely complicated and expensive, a company’s success depends greatly on technical expertise and experience. Often times the marketing and sales of shipbuilding companies are carried out by company executives, both to military and commercial customers. With the help of our shipbuilding executive search firm, companies can maximize profitability by locating and retaining exceptional, experienced, and knowledgeable executives and managers. Lordstone Corporation can save you time, money, and energy in your talent acquisition efforts.
"This was the best experience I have had with a search firm and I have worked with a couple of very good firms in the past. Your executive assessments were very good, thorough and helpful in the decision making process. I also appreciated the regular communication, the fact that your firm spent time getting to know each candidate personally and were able to answer our questions and the excellent opportunity summary. I greatly appreciate the work you have done for us.”
Many small companies find success in the industry by specializing in building and repair of small commercial vessels or by working as subcontractors for larger companies. Large companies benefit from economies of scale in purchasing, design, and manufacturing, and typically operate major shipyards on multiple coasts. While the U.S. military is the single largest customer of the U.S. shipbuilding industry, other major customers include fishing fleets, cruise lines, cargo shipping companies, and ferry and barge operators. We offer shipbuilding and repair recruiting assistance to small, medium, and large shipyards ranging from $1 million to $60 billion in revenue. No matter what your need, our shipbuilding and marine construction search consultants can assist you in identifying, attracting, and recruiting exceptional shipbuilding leadership.
