The HUBZone program is designed to help small and midsized businesses compete more effectively for federal government contracts.
“The HUBZone program will enable Fraser Shipyards to more effectively compete for marine related business from various government agencies – such as the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, and The United States Army Corps of Engineers.” said Dave Steininger, Fraser Shipyards President. “This certification has the potential to bring additional jobs and opportunity into the region through projects awarded to Fraser.”
