Tidewater Equipment Corp., Chesapeake VA

(now TEC Skanska Inc.)

Most recent update: September 8, 2015.


Tidewater Equipment Corp. started life in 1947 as a subsidiary of Tidewater Construction Corp.  In 1998, Tidewater Construction was acquired by Skanska USA and became Tidewater Skanska, Inc., a division of Skanska USA, and Tidewater Equipment became TEC Skanska.  The company is primarily a steel fabricator: most of the floating equipment it produces is used in the construction industry.  The yard is on the Elizabeth River, on the southeast side of the Dominion Boulevard bridge: see it from the air on Google here
