Newport News Shipbuilding relies on suppliers from 46 states across the country to provide parts and services for the construction and maintenance of aircraft carriers. This group of suppliers form the Aircraft Carrier Industrial Base Coalition (ACIBC), which meets annually in Washington, D.C. to urge congressional leaders to provide support for the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier program. This video was shown at the 2017 ACIBC Action Days, March 21-22. It features a message President Donald J. Trump brought to Newport News during his visit aboard Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) March 2, 2017. A supplier and NNS shipbuilders are also featured in the video regarding the importance of quality.
