About

Todd Houston Shipbuilding, in Houston, Texas, was an emergency shipyard operated by Todd Shipbuilding Corp (est. 1916) and Kaiser Corp. to build ships for World War II. This company was formally established on 6 January 1941. The yard was built at Irish Bend (a former island in the Houston Ship Channel). During the war Todd Houston employed 23,000 workers, built 208 Liberty ships and 14 T1-M-BT2 tankers. In 1946, after the war the yard closed. In 1949 the Brown Shipbuilding yard in Houston, now Todd's, became known as Todd Houston.

In 2011 Todd Hiousten merged with Vigor Shipyards.
