“Your team's dedication and technical expertise from planning through test execution were crucial to the safe and efficient completion of all testing objectives for both submarine platforms. Thank you for your exceptional support to the Program!”
John, U.S. Navy
“The folks at EB would like to thank you for all of KEEL’s support. We received confirmation that the units arrived at Quonset Point, passed inspection and are ready to support construction. Getting a fixture on site in time to support construction was of vital importance to our program and the ship as a whole. We could not have done it if not for your team’s diligent work and willingness to expedite this order.”
Electric Boat
“I want to express our sincere appreciation of KEEL. Your tireless support in hardware procurement timelines has been invaluable. With your rapid prototyping of hardware, we were able to push the envelope of our designs while still meeting aggressive testing deadlines. Your attention to detail, configuration management of orders, and responsiveness to last minute changes have been instrumental in our success story in achieving technology milestones never thought possible. We are thankful for your partnership.”
Adam, Naval Surface Warfare Center

Every aspect of the visit was impressive - from materials management, product flow/machine scheduling, quality assurance, overall cleanliness, organization through to continuous learning and training. I am confident that we have established a strong partnership to deliver complex, high-quality products on time.”
Captain, US Navy
“Thank you for all the support over the last year. KEEL has been a great ship building partner. I especially want to thank Merrill for teaching me so much about manufacturing.
