Currently, submarines are built, in part, at Electric Boat, in Connecticut, and Newport News, in Virginia.  (Note that Newport News has a new name).  One part is built in each shipyard, and alternately, floated to the other for final assembly.

"How about bulkheads for submarine construction? General Dynamics in New London CT.  Any other sub builders out there?"


Let's call New London by it's traditional name - Electric Boat.  Other builders before the Nuclear Navy: Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (Kittery, ME), Mare Island Naval Shipyard (Vallejo, CA), Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company (WWII - Manitowoc, WI).
