In 1917, Moore bought out Scott and the name changed to Moore Shipbuilding. In 1922, the company was renamed as Moore Dry Dock Company. It operated primarily as a repair yard. Its shipbuilding capabilities were expanded during World War II building over 100 ships for the U. Moore ranked 82nd among United States corporations in the value of World War II military production contracts.
With the end of the war, shipbuilding ceased, but repair operations continued. They also produced structural steel for the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, Oakland Airport, and structural elements for the Paramount Theater at UC Berkeley. Moore Dry Dock Company finally closed in 1961. The yard was notable for its employment of several thousand African Americans, in both skilled and unskilled positions, at a time when they confronted major racial discrimination on the job. At the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park an inscription honoring the wartime contributions made by the Bay Area Shipyards during World War II states that Moore Dry Dock handled the difficult jobs of production, repair and conversion that slowed overall output in other yards.
