Industries Served Military & Commercial Shipbuilding

Building your Ship with Hillman Inc. Metals and Components

Before steel, ships were primarily built from wood. Neither as durable nor as water-resistant, the material was much less suitable for the application.

It may appear that ships are constructed from the same steel type, but that’s not the case. Here are some common materials used in ship building. 

  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Specialty Steel Alloys

Primary uses of steel in ship making include: 

  • Rudders
  • Frames
  • Engine Parts
  • Doors
  • Propellers
  • Shell Plating

Hillman Inc. is a full service supplier of non-ferrous metals to the shipbuilding industry. With best-in-class inventory and customer service, we can quickly and affordably turn around metal alloys in the grades, sizes, and shapes you require. Contact us today
