Post any information you have about the total headcount (I know it changes all the time). How about the main office at Newport News?
We have approximately 42,000 employees. We are the largest industrial employer in Virginia and the largest private employer in Mississippi. We employ individuals specializing in 19 crafts and trades, with approximately 6,800 engineers and designers and approximately 2,500 employees with advanced degrees.
Our workforce contains many third-, fourth-, and fifth-generation employees, and approximately 1,380 employees with more than 40 years of continuous service. Employees in our shipbuilding divisions with more than 40 years of continuous service achieve the honor of “Master Shipbuilder.” As of December 31, 2019, we had 1,057 Master Shipbuilders at Newport News and 303 at Ingalls. We employ more than 7,400 veterans across the enterprise.
More than 1,900 apprentices are trained by our two shipbuilding segments each year in more than 27 crafts and advanced programs. From nuclear pipe welders to senior executives, we employ approximately 4,300 apprentice school alumni, 2,850 at Newport News, 1,400 at Ingalls, and 50 at Technical Solutions.
