Cruise liner refits
The British Isles has a long history in the maritime industry. We are a seafaring nation, not just our navy, but also the thriving cruise industry in the UK. With thousands of passengers, these ships must be built to meet demand and maintained ongoing. There is a constant flow of cruise liners coming into the dock to be refitted. Located on the south coast, in proximity to the ports of Portsmouth and Southampton, SLR could not be better located to offer a continuous flow of work for our incredible, industrial painters & blasters.
With a massive injection of cash into the National Shipbuilding Strategy last year, there are plans from the government to transform and reinvigorate British shipbuilding over the next 30 years. It’s an ambitious strategy around naval procurement aimed at ensuring British naval ships secure building contracts from around the globe. It means the shipyards we work with are very busy and need industrial painters.
