About Builders
 Seebeck G. Ag (Weser Werk Seebeck Ag, Seebeckwerft), Bremerhaven (Wesermünde)
Founded by Georg Seebek, a copper blacksmith from Brake. He benefited a lot due to the change from wood to iron shipbuilding as he was specialised in it due to his education. Thus he has taken over some woodbuilding shipping yards who came in financial troubles because they were not able to build iron ships.
