About Builders
 Richardson, Duck & Co., Thornaby (Stockton-On-Tees)
Twenty-four year old Joseph Richardson and George N. Duck formed the company Richardson Duck late in 1854. In the period up to 1865 the yard built a total of 50 screw steamers, one paddle steamer, 10 sailing ships and 29 barges. the first steel ships built on the Tees were launched from this yard in 1859. Over the years the yard took over numerous other yards on the Tees until 1865 when it amalgamated with the engine builder Thomas Richardson and the shipbuilder Denton Gray, both of Hartlepool, forming Richardson, Denton, Duck & Co. though a year later split back in to its constituent parts. Over the period 1870-72 output of the yard averaged 10,000 tons per annum. By 1882 this had risen to 21,000 tons. In 1909 the company was put on the Admiralty List. The yard was busy throughout the first world War, building, amongst others , two Flower class sloops. During the 1920s the company suffered a fall in orders and went in to liquidation in 1925.

Blair & Co. Ltd., Stockton-On-Tees
Blair & Co. was formed from the engine maker Fossick & Hackworth.
In 1855 George Blair was appointed manager and in the spring of 1865 he was made a partner and the company became Fossick, Blair & Co. when Hackworth retired. Fossick died in 1866 and the company became Blair & Co. Blair was responsible for the expansion of the works to specialise in marine engines.

At this time the company had 700 employees (later to rise to 2,000) and covered an area of seven and a half acres. The first compound marine engine on the Tees was built by Blair's in January 1869 and fitted to the "Glenmore" built by Backhouse & Dixon.

In 1884 the company produced its first triple expansion engine for the "Burgos" built by Richardson Duck. In 1887 the sheerlegs, which were to become a Stockton landmark for many years were errected at a cost of £2,695. These shearlegs were capable of lifting up to 100 tons and were sighted near the river to lift marine engines into newly built ships.

By 1914 almost 1,400 marine engines had been built. At least 340 for Pearse, and later Ropner, 240 for Richardson Duck and 103 for Thomas Turnbull at Whitby. A total of 75 engines were built during the First World War.

The company was taken over by Gould Steamships and Industrials in 1919.
