NORFOLK, Va. — Governor Ralph Northam says a Norfolk ship repair facility is expanding and looking to hire!
Northam announced Wednesday that Lyon Shipyard is adding a new boat lift to one of its dry docks. The move will invest $24.4 million in Virginia and create 119 new jobs.
The 93-year-old company already has two facilities in Norfolk along the Elizabeth River.
“Lyon Shipyard has been an integral part of the thriving maritime economy in Hampton Roads for nearly a century,” Northam said in a news release. “The company’s continued investment and job creation in Norfolk is a powerful testament to the strength of the local workforce and the region as an international shipping hub. We are proud to support this expansion, and look forward to Lyon Shipyard’s future growth in our Commonwealth.”
