About Builders
 Weser A. G., Bremen
A. G. Weser (Aktien-Gesellschaft Weser) was a German shipbuilding company located on the Weser River in Bremen. In 1846 the company was called Waltjen & Co. who built the first slipway and started construction of dredging vessels and barges. By 1865 more conventional steamboats and steamships were produced, but only in small numbers up to 1872 when the company was renamed Weser. The shipyard received significant orders from the Imperial Navy and in 1883 specialized in construction of torpedo boats. By 1905 the military production was close to fifty percent of output. A. G. Weser played a significant role in World War I, building U-boats and warships for the Kaiserliche Marine. In 1926 it was merged with eight other shipyards to form the Deutsche Schiff- und Maschinenbau AG but the name A.G. Weser was kept for the shipyard in Bremen.
