Cammell Laird: Response to the Defence Review

Cammell Laird has welcomed the findings of the Integrated Review and its ambitions for a modernised Royal Navy that can respond to future threats.  

David McGinley, Chief Executive Officer of Cammell Laird Ship Repairers and Shipbuilders Ltd, Atlantic and Peninsula Marine Services, today released a statement regarding the review.

He said, “We stand ready to support Government to deliver its long-term shipbuilding programme by taking an innovative, agile and flexible approach that will enable us to compete in the global economic marketplace. This means continuing to invest in advanced technology, up-skilling our existing workforce and training young and adult apprentices to become the next generation of engineers.  

“Further to this, we will work side-by-side with the wider industry, supply chain and Maritime Environment Working Group (MEWG) to deliver the vision of a super-charged and sustainable UK shipbuilding enterprise.”

David McGinley concluded by saying, “Our Birkenhead facility is also well placed to support the Government’s levelling up agenda and would ensure the North of England receives an equitable share of these vital infrastructure programmes that will help us build back better after the pandemic.  

“As we move into this new era of defence all stakeholders will have a part to play and we look forward to working alongside Government to help secure the future of UK shipbuilding.”

David McGinley, Chief Executive Officer of Cammell Laird Ship Repairers and Shipbuilders Ltd.
