About APCL Group

Two businesses with peerless reputations in the shipbuilding and ship repair industries are being brought together under the umbrella of a single company.

APCL Group LTD has been established to operate as an umbrella organisation for A&P Group and Cammell Laird. Neway Industrial Services has also been brought under the APCL banner.

Each company will retain their own unique identities, but by bringing the four businesses together under one banner, APCL will stand before the market as a c £300m business.

The move will enable APCL Group to develop an ‘all of one’ company approach to major contracts and will further the Group’s ambition of becoming a Tier One businesses. With locations in the North East, Falmouth and North West, it will be a true global entity and reinforce its standing on the international stage.

This decision was born out of the firm belief that together, we can better serve our customers both now, and in the future.

Our strategic locations across the globe ensures the APCL Group Builds Customer Success.

Our Vision

Building Customer Success.

“APCL Group’s mission is to capitalise on years of shipbuilding and ship repair experience and engineering strength to better support our customers.

“Our guiding principle is to put safety at the heart of everything we do – consequently Health and Safety will continue to underpin our collective efforts and the agenda for change.”

Responding to our Markets

Our three businesses - A&P Group, Cammell Laird and Neway – will now exist under the banner of one holding company, APCL Group Limited.

The formation of APCL Group will enable us to better serve the needs of our valued customers both now, and in the future.

Each business will retain their own identities and our customers will continue to receive the same high quality of service. However, under this new structure, they will be able to share resources and draw on a global base of expertise that will allow them to provide an even more comprehensive set of services to our clients.

Our reach is truly global. The services we provide sustain the international defence and maritime community, underpinning the availability of naval fleets while maintaining the vital operations of the seaborne asset community. But we are always striving for improvement.

The creation of APCL Group was born out of the firm belief that together, we can better serve our customers both now, and in the future.
