About Builders
 Ayrshire Dockyard Co. Ltd., Irvine (UK)
The company was formed in 1888. When Mackie and Thomson sold their old Govan yard to Harland and Wolff in 1912, part of the deal was that a four ship contract would be given to them to build four ships at their new six berth yard, based at Irvine on the coast of Scotland. -- During the First World War the yard built fleet tugs for the Admiralty along with merchant ships, Indian coastal passenger steamers and three standard "B" types were completed. The main customers of the yard were Clan Line Steamers and from 1919 to 1928, they built 25 ships. -- In 1928 the yard was bought by Lithgows. A couple of tramps were completed, and work started on a couple of others, but production came to a halt when the Depression hit the shipbuilding industry badly. -- No shipbuilding happened in 1933 and manufacturing only really picked up from 1936 onwards. However, soon after, the yard was purchased by National Shipbuilders Security. The yard's main function became that of a ship repairer which it continued doing throughout the 40s and 50s.
