SUN SHIPBUILDING BRIEF HISTORY: The company launched its first vessel in Chester in 1917 just as the United States entered the war. In the 1920s Sun Shipbuilding activities included construction of tankers for the Standard Oil Company. In World War II Sun Ship built 281 T-2 tanker oil carriers, nearly 40 percent of all the tankers built in this country in that period, as well as hospital ships and C4 cargo carriers for the US Maritime Commission.During the war a number of cargo ships originally built by Sun Shipbuilding were converted to flush-deck escort carriers (CVEs) at other shipyards. By the end of the war, Sun Shipbuilding was a city of its own, sprawling along the Delaware river.

After the war activities ranged from construction C4 Mariner cargo ships and repairs of US Navy destroyers to scrapping war-surplus vessels such as the aircraft carrier CV-4 Ranger. But the company was hit hard by the restructuring of the US economy and increasing competition from abroad. The Glomar Explorer was built in 1973 by Sun Shipbuilding for a secret CIA mission to retrieve a sunken Russian submarine. With the continuing deterioration of its business, on 15 February 1977 Sun Shipbuilding launched its last cargo ship, Westward Venture, having delivered 543 ships over a span of six decades.
