Sun Shipbuilding & Drydock Company

Sun Shipbuilding was a major shipbuilding company in Chester from 1917 to 1989. During World War II, it participated in the U.S. Government’s Emergency Shipbuilding Program. Today, the former Sun Shipbuilding Yard has been extensively reclaimed for other uses. While environmental remediation and development have mostly destroyed the yards structures, evidence of the some of the 28 slipways is still visible along the shoreline.
