Located in Seattle, Washington, this shipyard was founded in 1916 and is best known for having built the largest number of military vessels for World War I. It also broke the world production speed record for individual ship construction. Skinner and Eddy Corporation built 75 ships - 72 cargo ships and 3 oil tankers - from 1916 to 1920, including 32 completed for the Emergency Fleet Corporation during the war. At its peak as a company, the shipyard had roughly 13,500 employees. Sadly, everyone who worked at Skinner and Eddy Corporation was exposed to asbestos from handling the materials for shipbuilding, such as insulation, tiles, and cement. If you were employed there, it is advisable to keep a close eye on your health, especially when it comes to your respiratory system.
