SSPC Golf Tournament

On June 26, 2020, Marcom Services LLC had a team participate in and sponsored a hole at the SSPC Golf Tournament at Sleepy Hole Golf Course in Suffolk, Virginia.

 It was a great day to get out of the office and socialize with colleagues, vendors and customers alike!

NASSCO Certificate Of Recognition

In May 2020, Marcom was honored to host the leadership team of General Dynamics NASSCO-Norfolk at our office to receive a Certificate of Recognition.

We take pride in partnering with NASSCO and supporting them in repairing our nation’s warships.  In the past 12 months, NASSCO has contracted us to perform preservation and repair work on seven (7) different ships, and we look forward to many more in the future.

USS Gravely (DDG-107) Drydocking

As of April 2020, Marcom has completed all the preservation work associated with the drydocking of the USS GRAVELY (DDG-107) at NASSCO.

 The work performed included the Underwater Hull, Freeboard and the Tanks and Mast, totaling well over 100,000 square feet.  It was a successful Docking Availability, and we look forward to completing the topside preservation at the pier.

Roaring 20 Honoree

In November of 2019, Marcom Services was recognized

Love for VB

As a strong proponent of positivity in the community, Marcom was honored to be a supporter of the LOVE for VB Music Festival in June of 2019.  This event helped raise $90,000 for the families of the tragic events that took place at the Virginia Beach Municipal Center on May 31, 2019.

Three Simultaneous Drydock Overhauls

February 2019 brought the drydocking of the USS GEORGE H W BUSH (CVN-77), USS ARLEIGH BURKE (DDG-51) and the USS BULKELEY (DDG-84) to Marcom’s resume.

Three (3) Simultaneous drydock overhauls of significant magnitude was quite the undertaking, but the Marcom Services team took this challenge in stride.

Ex-USS McKee

In May 2018, Marcom successfully completed preservation of the Freeboard of the ex-USS McKee in Drydock #8 at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

A total of 60,000 square feet was blasted using a combination of ultra-high pressure (UHP) water-jetting lances and robotic crawlers. The vessel was coated with an epoxy primer system and a polysiloxane topcoat. Work was completed safely, ahead of schedule, and under budget.

USCGC Kennebec

In May 2018, Marcom successfully completed preservation of the Buoy Deck of the USCGC Kennebec at the Coast Guard base in Portsmouth, VA.

The deck was contained with an environmental enclosure, abrasive blasted to bare metal, and coated with an inorganic zinc coating.  This project was a trial by the Coast Guard to test the feasibility of performing exterior abrasive blasting to pier-side vessels without blast media contamination occurring in the river.  The effort was SUCCESSFUL.
