Scott Lithgow

Scott Lithgow, Limited was a Scottish shipbuilding company.

History

The Company was formed in 1967 by the merger of Scotts Shipbuilding and Engineering Company and Lithgows.[1] Scott Lithgow was based in Port Glasgow and Greenock on the lower Clyde in Scotland. Scott Lithgow was nationalised and subsumed into British Shipbuilders in 1977.[1] Reorganisation of the latter in 1981 saw all assets passing back to Scott Lithgow,[1].

The company became the centre of British Shipbuilders Offshore Division and it was hoped that the offshore semi-submersible market would lead the yard back to profitability. However the Ocean Alliance semi-submersible construction was a disastrous contract for the company, with the rig eventually delivered four years late and at a loss of over 200 million.[2]

In 1984 Trafalgar House bought the company and the Company ceased to trade in 1993.[1]
