Vigor is a values-driven, diversified industrial business operating in six primary locations with 2,300 people in Oregon, Washington and Alaska. Built around a collection of powerful, unique assets and differentiated capabilities, Vigor excels at specialized shipbuilding, ship repair and handling important, complex projects in support of energy generation, our nation’s infrastructure and national defense. With deep respect for people and the planet, Vigor strives to be a positive, regenerative force for good – environmentally, in the lives of its employees and in the community.

Vigor specializes in complex fabrication for a variety of industries including Aerospace, Nuclear, Renewable Energy, Bridge and Structural Fabrication. Representative projects include nuclear containment devices and reactor modules, dam lift gates and complex space launch towers.

Investments in state-of-the-art technology have led to one of the largest and most sophisticated CNC machining operations on the West Coast. Our designers, engineers, and fabricators regularly work with carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, magnesium, plastics and composites.

Technology combined with a highly skilled workforce have enabled our teams to fabricate a diverse project portfolio. Vigor has built over 300 sophisticated high performance marine vessels, including workboats, combatant crafts and unmanned surface vessels. For more than two decades, it has been the primary integrated fabrication supplier for the Ground Based Missile Defense program. It has supplied new equipment for the historic Bonneville Dam and critical components to support the resurgence of the nuclear industry, to name a few achievements in its 70-year history.

Over the years, Vigor has established itself as a world-class performer in the complex metals fabrication, mechanical equipment manufacturing, and systems integration industries. This requires a continuous commitment to the evaluation and improvement of our technology and processes with the goal of maintaining the role as the leader in these industries. Vigor has an exceptional history of success, and takes great pride in not only meeting, but exceeding our customers’ expectations in all areas, including performance, design, logistics, schedule, delivery, and cost. While Vigor has more than five facilities our interns will work out of our Clackamas, Oregon shop which is the prime location for material preparation, machining and welding. This shop sits on 17-acres and presently has 197,000 sq ft under roof with 26,000 sq ft of office space. There will be opportunity to travel to other locations in both Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon.
