About this event

Cammell Laird is one of the most famous names in British industry. The company was founded in 1828 and has a long and illustrious history in marine and heavy engineering. Mainly recognised as a Shipbuilder and Repairer, those attending will discover that the company is now much more than this as it expands into new and emerging engineering sectors including civil nuclear and renewable energy. Attendees will have the opportunity to get an insight into the operations and infrastructure of the company including one of the largest modular construction halls in Europe and an extensive range of wet and dry docks, and a non-tidal wet basin.
Cammell Laird is internationally recognised for the quality of its engineering and marine services and this is confirmed by its contracts to service the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Fleet, and its work in building the flight deck, hangars and accommodation for the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, the UK’s largest ever warship.
