The shipyard in Slidell was originally established by Fritz Salmen in the 1880s: it became Slidell Shipbuilding in 1914, Louisiana Shipbuilding in 1916, and Canulette Shipbuilding in 1919.  It was sold in 1954 and renamed J. & S. Shipbuilding, then sold again in 1957 and renamed Southern Shipbuilding.  Southern Shipbuilding closed in 1993 and the facility has been razed.
