Approximately 15 acres of Pier 70 are leased from the Port of San Francisco for ship repair operations. The current operator of the ship repair operation is Puglia Engineering Inc.

Among the largest repair facilities on the west coast, Pier 70 dry docks can handle vessels of almost any size. The ongoing maritime industrial activity at Pier 70 represents the continuation of a tradition in this location dating from the middle of the 19th Century.
