The Newport County Chamber of Commerce (the NCCC) annually presents Excellence in Business Awards to celebrate the achievements of locally owned businesses and recognize the vital role they play in the economic well-being of the community. On Wednesday, April 26, 2017, SEA CORP was selected to receive the Excellence in Business award in the large business category, which is any business having greater than fifty personnel.
This award is a tribute to SEA CORP and to its employees who enable their company to be a key member of the community, both economically and through local community support. Some of the ways SEA CORP’s employees support the local community are through supporting the NCCC Tons-of-Love Food Drive, the long-time support of the United Way of Rhode Island, the collection of food to support Thanksgiving Baskets for the Salvation Army, and the sponsorship and donation of “Adopt-A-Family” efforts for multiple organizations, among other supporting efforts.
SEA CORP, a locally-owned Rhode Island business, was founded in Newport in 1981. The company provides a wide variety of systems and engineering services primarily to Department of Defense customers. SEA CORP is headquartered in Middletown’s Aquidneck Corporate Park, where the firm holds office space in 3 separate buildings. The company employs over 400 professionals including engineers, scientists, technicians and management support personnel.
