About Event


Made in PA Supplier Forum: General Dynamics Electric Boat

This Made in PA Supplier aims to connect Pittsburgh manufacturers and innovators with business opportunities with General Dynamics and other attendee companies. 

General Dynamics Electric Boat, established in 1899, has established standards of excellence in the design, construction and lifecycle support of submarines for the U.S. Navy.

Learn more about

At this Supplier Forum, attendees will learn about General Dynamics Electric Boat, the submarine industry and how to navigate the process of becoming a supplier to Electric Boat and others within the submarine industry. The goal is to have attendees walk away with an understanding of where their products/services fit into this complex supply chain and to determine next steps for becoming a supplier. 

We’ll have limited, short, private one-on-one meetings with Electric Boat. As representatives of both General Dynamics Electric Boad and the Submarine Industrial Base Council, they’ll be able to answer your questions to determine if you should supply directly to them or which lower-tiered suppliers would benefit the most from your products and services.

Who Should Attend? 
This event is for companies that are interested in supplying to or that want to expand the products they supply to the submarine industry.  Companies who are doing market research into product feasibility and market fit may also benefit from attending. 

If you have any questions about whether or not your company is a good fit to attend, please contact Monica Takacs at
Bring your questions and your value prop. This should not be a traditional sales pitch! 

When: October 7, 2021 | 1:30 PM to 3:45 PM
Where: Nova Place Conference Center, 100 S. Commons, Suite 172, Pittsburgh, PA 15212*
