Bender Shipbuilding and Repair Auction

After going into bankruptcy, Bender Shipbuilding and Repair Company, which operated on the Mobile, Alabama waterfront for over 90 years, was sold to Signal International, and the new company, Signal Ship Repair, no longer builds ships. Myron Bowling Auctioneers and Alex Lyon & Son Construction Equipment Auctions auctioned off large construction and shipbuilding equipment, Wednesday, May 12, 2010, but the shipyard was still operating in the area of ship repairs.
