Founded in 1901 and now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, NIST is one of the nation’s oldest physical science laboratories. Congress established the agency to remove a major handicap to U.S. industrial competitiveness at the time—a second-rate measurement infrastructure that lagged behind the capabilities of England, Germany, and other economic rivals. Today, NIST measurements support the smallest of technologies—nanoscale devices so tiny that tens of thousands can fit on the end of a single human hair—to the largest and most complex of human-made creations, from earthquake-resistant skyscrapers to wide-body jetliners to global communication networks. We invite you to explore our web site to learn about our current projects, to find out how you can work with us, or to make use of our products and services.

GSSC began in 2006, when the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), through its Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) program, awarded a $750,000 grant to the Alabama Technology Network (ATN) to assist shipbuilders affected by Hurricane Katrina along the Gulf Coast.
While the overall purpose of the grant was to address the critical shortage of technically skilled workers available to Gulf Coast shipbuilders and other industry issues, one of the four major goals was to establish a membership-based, regional cooperative group of shipbuilding companies, suppliers, educational institutions, and economic developers as a non-profit Gulf Coast Shipbuilders Consortium.
