This small shipyard was bought from Huntley ship repairers in 1919 to take advantage of the boom that was taking place post-war. It was bought by Sir John Crass, Harald Merryleee and N. Hunter-Doeg with one slipway and a few workshops.
Three berths were completed in 1920 and the first keel was laid in February of that year. The yard saw two ships constructed for export, but closed down in April 1921 as a result of an internal financial crisis.
Their ships were not fully completed, and had to be taken to Hartlepool and Scotland for completion.
