Lobnitz Marine Holdings is a Scottish shipbuilding company located at Renfrew on the River Clyde, west of the Renfrew Ferry crossing and east of the confluence with the River Cart. The company builds dredgers, floating docks, fishing boats, tugs and workboats.
Simons and Lobnitz
The company is descended from Coulburn Lobnitz & Company, which was established in 1874, and the adjacent Shipyard of Simons, established in 1860. Both specialised in the construction of dredgers and hopper barges. The two companies eventually amalgamated in 1957 as Simons and Lobnitz. In the face of declining business the Renfrew yard finally closed in 1964, after some 1300 dredgers as well as barges and tugs had been built at the site. The company's goodwill and orders were bought by Alexander Stephen and Sons, which merged into Upper Clyde Shipbuilders in 1968. Simons-Lobnitz emerged from UCS and continues to operate as a marine engineering and naval architecture consultancy based in Paisley.
