Newport News Industrial Corporation
Newport News Industrial Corporation (NNI), a subsidiary of Huntington Ingalls Industries, is an outgrowth of Newport News Shipbuilding's participation in the construction of Navy nuclear plant prototypes. NNI was incorporated in 1965 as the Nuclear Engineering and Construction Company. Its original mission was to support the design and construction of commercial nuclear power plants which expanded over time to include maintenance, repair and modification services. In 1973, the name was changed to Newport News Industrial Corporation to better reflect the company's mission and its expansion into fossil power plants and other industrial facilities. Today, NNI provides a wide range of services and innovative products to the Energy and Petrochemical industries as well as government customers such as NASA, Department of Energy and Department of Defense.
