Vigor Industrial Renames Subsidiaries

Portland-based ship repair and industrial services company Vigor Industrial has renamed two of its subsidiaries. As of Oct. 8, 2013, US Fab, Vigor’s fabrication and shipbuilding subsidiary, is now Vigor Fab. Alaska Ship and Drydock, which operates the Ketchikan shipyard in Alaska, is now Vigor Alaska.

“It’s about better serving our customers,” Vigor Industrial President and CEO Frank Foti explained in a statement announcing the changes. “The new names not only simplify things for customers dealing with Vigor, they better reflect the reality that no matter which subsidiary customers are working with, they can count on Vigor’s high level of craftsmanship and customer service.”

The changes apply to the names only, according to the company, and do not alter the operating structures of either subsidiary. The new names went into effect immediately.

Vigor Fab and Vigor Alaska join three other subsidiaries under the Vigor name: Vigor Shipyards, which provides repair, maintenance and modernization services to the US Navy and Coast Guard; Vigor Marine, which provides fixed-price ship repair, refit and modernization services to commercial customers; and Vigor Machine, which provides machining work for a variety of industrial applications, including turbines and generators.
