Lévis' economy is based on its commercial and service sectors but its industrial sector is also significant. Other manufactured goods include food, beverages, and plastic and metal products. Davie Shipbuilding (now MILDavie Shipbuilding) of Lauzon, founded in 1828, is the oldest and largest SHIPBUILDING company in Canada. Its deepwater port can handle 150 000 t vessels but is used mainly as a waiting area for cruise ships.
