About Builders
 North Carolina Shipbuilding Co. - George A. Fuller & Co., Wilmington (Nc)
North Carolina Shipbuilding was one of the original nine emergency yards, developed by Newport News Shipbuilding in 1941 with 6 ways, with $20mm from the USMC. Its 6 ways were increased to 9 in the second wave of shipbuilding expansion. At its peak, North Carolina Shipbuilding employed 15,000 people and had the best productivity of any of the Liberty shipbuilders. After the war, the yard was held in reserve as a stand-by yard until the 1950s, when it was liquidated.
