Omni Fabricators, Corpus Christi and Brownsville TX

Most recent update: August 9, 2014.


Omni Fabricators was one of the many small shipbuilders which started in business just in time for the collapse of the industry in 1982.  They operated two facilities, one in Corpus Christi and one in Brownsville, but I cannot find any indication of where they were or how the work was divided.
