About Builders
 Furness Shipbuilding Co. Ltd., Middlesbrough
The Furness Shipbuilding Co. was part of the Furness, Withy and Co. shipbuilding empire based in Hartlepool in England. It had been built as an emergency shipyard to cope with the repair requirements of World War I. The yard was a massive 90 acres in size and had eight berths and two high tower cranes. -- To start a number of ships were ordered by and manufactured for the British Government along with orders from foreign companies. In mid 1919 the Furness family resigned from the Board of Furness, Withy and Co and a management buyout happened. This meant that during the first half of the 1920s there was a constant supply of orders for Furness, Withy & Co and its subsidiaries.
