History
Transocean Air Lines        1946 - 1960
Transocean Air Lines - The First Aviation Conglomerate
Transocean Engineering Company (TEC)

The Transocean Engineering Company (TEC), founded
in 1948 and directed by Harold Hudson, engaged in
general construction and the installation of air
navigation and lighting systems.
TEC completed various bridges in
California, including one across
Butte Creek, and the Big Bar Bridge
in Shasta-Trinity National Forest. In
1954, TEC built roads at Bedding,
California and Middletown,
California, and a $275,000 fish
hatchery. But perhaps TEC's most
outstanding success was the 6,400
square foot quonset hotel built in just
twenty-two days at Wake Island.
