Ingalls Shipbuilding Employees Honored With President's Awards For Excellence

PASCAGOULA, Miss., March 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Huntington Ingalls Industries' (NYSE:HII) Ingalls Shipbuilding division has honored five teams and three individuals with "President's Awards for Excellence" for their outstanding and innovative work on shipbuilding projects. The award-winners were formally recognized at a dinner held March 14 in Gulfport, Miss.

"We build very sophisticated and complex products, and it takes skill and innovation to do it more cost-effectively," said Ingalls Shipbuilding President Irwin F. Edenzon. "These awards recognize the forward-thinking measures our shipbuilders are taking on a daily basis to improve our performance and streamline our processes. These awards acknowledge our commitment to quality and to meeting our customer's expectations as they face ever-increasing budget pressures."

Each year, Ingalls presents the President's Award for Excellence to shipbuilders for their outstanding contributions in the areas of innovation and technology, customer satisfaction and operational excellence.

The 2013 recipients are:

Donny Dorsey

As head of operations at the Gulfport Composite Center of Excellence, Donny Dorsey led the facility through manufacturing innovation and the successful delivery of two large composite structures for the U.S. Navy. Dorsey's dependability and strong sense of responsibility inspire a greater sense of ownership and responsibility among those who interact with him.

Glenn Clement

Glenn Clement became craft director of coatings sheetmetal joiner and insulators in 2011. Well-known for his accomplishments in improving quality and controlling costs at Avondale, Clement implemented a number of significant changes and improvements in his new role in Pascagoula. These include improving environmental controls and managing costs by eliminating waste.

Mike Rogers

Mike Rogers negotiated a cost reduction of $3.3 million for steel plates. In addition, he researched and invoked a clause that protects the company against large price swings over six-month periods. Using this clause, Ingalls can execute purchase orders based on cost trends. This was used to achieve a $600,000 reduction for LHA 7.
