Trinity Industries, Madisonville LA

(formerly Equitable Equipment Company)

Most recent update: September 1, 2013.


Equitable Equipment Company was founded by Neville Levy in 1921.  In 1966, they acquired the former Higgins Industries yard on the Industrial Canal in New Orleans, which had closed in 1963, and began to build boats there, using the name Equitable Shipyards, while the Madisonville yard continued to build barges.  Equitable was acquired by Trinity Industries in 1972 and both yards continued in operation until 1996, when Trinity spun off the New Orleans yard as part of Halter Marine Group.  The Madisonville yard continues today as a division of Trinity Marine Products.  The yard is located on the Tchefuncte River, which feeds into Lake Pontchartrain: you can see it from the air on Google here.  The Equitable Equipment table lists all the boats and barges built in both yards by Equitable, before the company was bought by Trinity, the Halter Equitable table lists all the boats and barges built by Trinity and Halter in the New Orleans yard, and this table lists all the barges built by Trinity at Madisonville.  There is a lot of confusion in the records as to which vessels were built in which yard: if anyone finds an error, or has any data to add to the table, please send it to timcolton@aol.com
