|Founded||1948 (as Stocznia Szczecińska)|
Szczecin Shipyard or New Szczecin Shipyard (Polish: Stocznia Szczecińska Nowa) was a shipyard in the city of Szczecin, Poland. Formerly known as Stocznia Szczecińska Porta Holding S.A. (until 2002) or Stocznia im. Adolfa Warskiego. The shipyard specialized in the construction of container ships, chemicals transport ships, multi-purpose ships and Con-Ro ships. It employed about 4400 people, and the executive director was Andrzej Markowski. It had the ISO 9001:2000 certificate.
It was founded in the aftermath of World War II, when the important German port of Stettin was taken over by Poland and renamed Szczecin. The state-owned shipyard then inherited the assets of the former German shipbuilding giant AG Vulcan Stettin.
It was the 5th biggest shipyard in Europe and the 40th in the world.
Searching for an investor
In 2009, the Polish government contracted the sale of Szczecin Shipyard and Gdynia shipyards to QInvest of Qatar. However, by September the deal had fallen apart, and the government started looking for new investors.
