Ruppersberger to Announce New Jobs at Growing Metals Company at Sparrows Point
(Timonium, MD) – Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) tomorrow will help announce new jobs created through the expansion of a Baltimore company that specializes in dismantling retired ships. BB Metals recently won its first government contract and is now disassembling the 455-foot USNS Range Sentinel and re-selling its steel. The project will create about 55 jobs and the company hopes to create 300 more with future contracts to dismantle retired aircraft carriers.
The event will include an up-close-and-personal look at the Sentinel, which was present in Tokyo Bay for the Japanese surrender in World War II. The ship was later used to track test missiles launched from submarines operating off the Florida coast.
