The Virginia Ship Repair Association (VSRA) is a regional trade association representing companies engaged in, or supporting, the ship repair industry in Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic region. Its mission is to focus and coordinate member resources on issues, challenges, and opportunities facing the ship repair industry in Virginia and across the nation. The Virginia Ship Repair Association has a rich History, with its origin being in 1979.




Established in 2002, the non-profit American  Maritime Modernization Association (AMMA) promotes the accomplishment of cost-effective, professional, and high quality shipboard maintenance and  modernization through the use of best value commercial sources.




Established in 1982 to increase industry cooperation and cohesiveness and create greater public awareness and understanding of the industry’s issues, the Port of San Diego Ship Repair Association represents more than 100 San Diego-area companies engaged in ship repair, conversion, overhaul and modernization. Approximately 70 percent of the work performed is on United States Navy and Defense Contracts.




The Jacksonville Area Ship Repair Association was founded in 2005 when corporate officers of individual private sector shipyards decided that such an organization would be beneficial and provide a platform for the ship repair community.  Membership was extended to ship repair subcontractors, suppliers, and support service companies.  At the first general  meeting  the Board of Directors were unanimously voted into office by the members.
