SEPTEMBER 26, 2013 — Seattle and New Orleans based naval architecture and marine engineering firm Elliott Bay Design Group LLC (EBDG) has established an office in Ketchikan, Alaska to meet growing customer demand in the region.
"This move enables us to better serve our Alaska clients and to establish new relationships and deepen existing ones," says VP of Engineering Brian King. "We hope to enjoy beneficial business partnerships in the state for some time to come."
EBDG says it is the preferred service provider for a number of Alaska‐based companies with which it shares long‐standing relationships.

The new office is located in Ketchikan's Ward Cove community at 7559 North Tongass Highway and will serve as EBDG's base of operations within the state. This move comes after months of strategic planning and occurs in alignment with the company's stated goals to provide support to clients operating within Alaska and to serve as a regional resource for quick reaction field engineering.
EBDG's flagship office in Seattle was founded in December 1987 when three partners purchased the assets of sixty‐year‐old naval architecture firm, Nickum & Spaulding Associates, Inc. In 2006, the employee‐owned enterprise established a presence on the Gulf Coast and today continues to support clients across the United States. The company has recently experienced steady growth and has been making several hires a month since the beginning of 2013
