Austal USA, Mobile AL

Most recent update: March 12, 2014.


Austal USA was established in 2000 as a joint venture of the Australian boatbuilder, Austal, and Tom Bender, owner of Bender Shipbuilding.  Austal bought Bender out in September 2006.  The shipyard is a completely new facility on Pinto Island in Mobile, located close to the I-10 tunnel.  Visit the company at www.austal.com and see the yard from the air on Google here: the original yard is the white building just north of the Bankhead tunnel; the first expansion was the building between the two tunnels; and there is now also a big fab shop on the land southeast of the corner of Dunlap and ADDSCO.
