Expansion plan for Ferguson Marine

Some good news for Scotland's few shipbuilders, with a bit of vision and capital perhaps this plan will come to fruition.

Plans are being developed to employ up to 1,300 workers at a Clyde shipyard which went bust a year ago.
Seventy staff at Ferguson Shipbuilder, Port Glasgow, were laid off last August when it went into administration.

Any news that presents the opportunity for more shipbuilding jobs in Scotland is very welcome.
Lets hope that the few remaining shipbuilders left can also get a wage that there skills are worth, and prevent more leaving for  better paying opportunities overseas.
