About

Ferguson’s is a specialist provider of small commercial ships.

Ferguson has a lengthy track record of combining the competencies described elsewhere within this site to produce small commercial ships. With over 100 years of experience in this field Ferguson 's is able to produce a range of vessel types including ferries, dredgers, patrol and research vessels. These vessels incorporate the very latest in marine technology including sophisticated propulsion, electronic and hydraulic systems.   Ferguson Shipbuilders Limited is a shipyard located in Port Glasgow on the River Clyde in Scotland. It is the last remaining shipbuilder on the lower Clyde, and the only builder of non-military vessels on the river - the company's mainstay has long been car ferries.   History The Company was founded by the four Ferguson Brothers (Peter, Daniel, Louis and Robert) who left the & Ferguson" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fleming_%26_Ferguson">Fleming & Fergusonshipyard in Paisley to lease the Newark yard in Port Glasgow in March 1903.[1] The Ferguson brothers acquired the freehold in the Newark yard in 1907. The Company was purchased by John Slater Ltd. (Amalgamated Industries) in 1918, but was returned to the control of the Ferguson family in the late 1920's. Lithgows Ltd. purchased an interest in the business in 1955 after Bobby Ferguson's death[1] and took control of the Company in 1961. The Company remained a separate entity within the Scott Lithgow group from 1969 to 1977.[1] The Company was nationalised and subsumed into Shipbuilders" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Shipbuilders">British Shipbuilders in 1977. The business was merged with the Ailsa Shipbuilding Company to form Ferguson-Ailsa Ltd. in 1980.[1] Ferguson and Ailsa were separated again in 1986 and Ferguson merged with Appledore Shipbuilders in Devon to form Appledore Ferguson. By the late 1980's the only yards still held in state ownership were the smaller Appledore and Ferguson yards.[2] Ferguson was demerged from Appledore and acquired by Clark Kincaid in 1989 and started trading as Ferguson Shipbuilders.[1] Clark Kincaid itself was acquired by Kvaerner and became Kvaerner Kincaid in 1990.[3]

Ferguson Shipbuilders Ltd. was sold by Kvaerner to Ferguson Marine plc in 1991. The entire shareholding in Ferguson Marine was acquired by the Holland House Electrical Group in 1995.
