Erie Concrete & Supply Company was formed in 1913: it established a shipyard for the war effort in 1941 and closed it in 1945.  The yard was on the Lake Erie waterfront, on land leased from the Pennsylvania Railroad, about a mile from the main Erie Concrete plant.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to me at timcolton@aol.com.
