Zidell Marine, Portland OR

Most recent update: August 27, 2014.


Zidell Marine started life 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.  In 2013, Zidell announced its intention to redevelop the 33-acre site: at present, the shipyard is still operating, but maybe for not much longer.  Visit them at www.zidell.com and see the site from the air on Google here.
