“The key to our success at Campbeltown Shipyard Ltd was teamwork – right from Sir William Lithgow, through management, right to the youngest apprentice. We took young, local men and turned them into highly skilled tradesmen who became an asset to the yard. Our boats were highly popular as they had outstanding sea keeping qualities”. Leslie Howarth, former Managing Director at Campbeltown Shipyard.
