Located along the Jacques Cartier basin, the shipyard Saint-Malo Naval (Leroux and Lodz group) was born of the resumption in 1988 of "Ateliers et Chantiers de la Manche" (ACM). It continued this activity by producing among other tuna seiners and tugs.

NGV Emeraude Saint-Malo Naval has been the source of HSV (high-speed vessel) building in 1994 the Emeraude for the compagny Emeraude Lines, then the NGV ASCO and ALISO for the SNCM.

In 1997, the sites are redeemed by Alstom and became Alstom Leroux Naval. This is the year that was built the lastest tug of the port of Saint-Malo, the Davier

The yard built in 1998, the cruise ship "Le Levant" for the Compagnie des Iles du Ponant.
