(later Southwest Marine, now BAE Systems)

Most recent update: June 12, 2012.


San Diego Marine Construction was established in 1915.  It was sold to Campbell Industries in the early 1970s and then to Southwest Marine in the late 1970s.  Southwest converted it to a repair facility.  It is now the San Diego division of BAE Systems Ship Repair: see it from the air on Google here.  If anyone can fill any of the gaps in the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com.
