An Agoura Hills-based marketing and engineering firm has announced that it has thrown its hat into the ring of bidders who are trying to buy Todd Pacific Shipyards in San Pedro after the company's decision to close down the yard. Intercontinental Logistics Inc., which two years ago represented Todd in its unsuccessful bid to win Greek shipbuilding contracts, said that it is negotiating with Todd and the Los Angeles Harbor Department, which leases its land to Todd.

Orders to U.S. factories for manufactured goods fell 2.3% in March, with civilian demand declining at the steepest rate in almost six years, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. The department said new orders on a seasonally adjusted basis fell to $194.17 billion in March following a 1.3% drop in February. The March decline was the biggest since a 3.3% decrease in April, 1984. The decline would have been even larger without a huge surge in orders for defense products, which rose 45.

General Dynamics Corp. said Thursday that it will buy Bath Iron Works, one of the nation's oldest shipyards, for $300 million in cash. The acquisition would give General Dynamics access to the privately held shipyard's backlog of about $2 billion in orders for Navy ships. At a time when new shipbuilding contracts are scarce, companies looking to expand their business must buy existing contracts.
