General Dynamics Electric Boat continues hiring process for Columbia Class submarine building

NORTH KINGSTOWN General Dynamics Electric Boat is hiring for both entry-level and skilled machinist positions at its Quonset Point location in North Kingstown. The manufacturer recently hosted a career fair at New England Institute of Technology in East Greenwich.

General Dynamics Electric Boat is aggressively hiring to support the construction of the Columbia Class submarines, the next-generation nuclear sub for the U.S. Navy.

Electric Boat is in full-scale construction mode at the company’s manufacturing complex in Quonset Point for four of the six supermodules, which will be transported by barge to be assembled into a submarine at its specially designed facility in Groton, Conn., according to a statement by Electric Boat.

With the construction planned for almost a decade, the Columbia class submarines will be the largest built by the U.S., at 560 feet long, said Electric Boat. Hiring continues; information on Electric Boat careers can be found here.
