About Us

Cammell Laird, shipbuilding and engineering.

The original Cammell Laird was founded in 1828 and is based on the River Mersey, in the Liverpool City Region, on the west coast of Britain. The company’s Birkenhead site expands across 130 acres and includes four dry docks, a large modular construction hall and extensive covered workshops. It is also at the centre of a marine and engineering cluster, with easy access to support services, classification societies and port state authorities.

Today, modern-era Cammell Laird supports a broad range of sectors, employing its engineering knowledge not only in the Shipbuilding industry (where the company is actively working on both military and commercial projects, involving ship-repair, upgrades and conversions), but also in the industrial services and energy sectors.
The firm is also working in the civil nuclear sector, where it has built upon its core engineering strengths, demonstrating how its modular construction facility can deliver optimised solutions for nuclear and power plants across UK and Europe. Alongside the nuclear sector, the company offers services to the offshore oil and gas sectors, the petrochemical industry and a wide range of engineering and heavy fabrication work.

Cammell Laird engineering specialisation is made possible by a highly skilled workforce and a strong internship programme, introducing young talents to the industry.
All the activities that the company conducts are underpinned by a comprehensive and accredited Health and Safety System OHSAS 18001:2007. Quality Management Systems are operated in accordance with ISO9001, and Environmental Management System 14001, and with site security being Department of Transport ISPS compliant.
