Sun Shipbuilding Co.
Sets Production Goal
At Tanker a Week
Hopes to Cut Construction
Time Further to Under
Four Months
Br tto* Associated Press.
PHILADELPHIA, May 8.—A
tanker a week for the next year—
that’s the goal of the Sun Ship
building Co. near here, John Pew,
Jr., said today.
Tremendously increased facilities,
Including expansion of shipyards
from eight to 28 separate ways on
which ships are constructed will
allow one-a-week launchings, he
estimated.
The company’s major contract to
day la with the United States Mari
time Commission for 92 tankers,
each displacing 17,000 tons. Under
a specific Sun Co. process of electric
welding Instead of riveting ships’
plates, tankers are being turned out
in four months Instead of six and
Mr. Pew said it is hoped to cut an
other month off the construction
time.
Sun shipyards employ more than
five times as many men as they did
a year ago and expect to add an
other 8,000 soon, Mr. Pew said.
Part of the company's business is
repair work of torpedoed tankers,
some built in their own yards, which
are able to make port after sea
battles with Axis submarines.
