Campbell Industries, San Diego CA

Most recent update: July 16, 2011.


Campbell Industries was founded in 1906, as Campbell Machine Company, a builder and repairer of tuna seiners.  In the 1960s, it was sold to a group of San Diego fishermen who took it public, but this was not a successful move and in 1979 it was bought by Marco.  Marco closed Campbell in 1999 and the property is now part of the San Diego Convention Center.  See the site from the air on Google here.
