Zidell Marine, Portland OR

Most recent update: August 28, 2013.


Zidell started in 1916 as Zidell Machinery & Supply.  It began dismantling ships after WWII, on the site of the former Commercial Iron Works, just south of the Ross Island Bridge, and became the largest shipbreaker in the U.S.  The company started building new barges from scrap steel in 1960.  The site was sold for redevelopment in 2013.  Visit the company at www.zidell.com and see it from the air on Google here.
