City of Bath
Make History in Bath.
Bath’s heritage as an American shipbuilding center endures today, and our city has become a Maine manufacturing hub, attracting everything from gourmet biscuits to cutting edge composites. A great location, skilled work force, and supportive local government make this the ideal place to set up shop. In 2010, Bath was named the #1 manufacturing city in the State of Maine.
Bath is home to Bath Iron Works, one of Maine’s largest employers. Since 1884, BIW has been a presence on Bath’s waterfront, currently designing and building destroyers for the U.S. Navy. With more than 5,000 employees making their way to the Shipyard daily, Bath acts as a service center for surrounding communities.
Businesses located here have access to a historic, year-round, downtown district with excellent locally-owned retail stores, restaurants, markets, banks and other services attractive to employees and necessary for day-to-day business operations. Bath boasts a thriving downtown with a strong Main Street organization.
