Mustang Marine (Wales) join forces with Milford Haven Ship Repairers (MHSR)

Currently the trading name for Milford Haven Port Authority, MHSR, is to be rebranded under the Mustang Marine (Wales) Ltd name and will operate from the existing two sites, the dry dock facility at Milford Dock and the slipway facility adjacent to Mustang Marine in Pembroke Dock.

Mustang Marine, is a boat builder and repairer of workboats, pilot boats, passenger and similar commercial vessels up to 40m in length. Established in 1984 by the Lewis family, the company has witnessed steady growth specifically in the last 5 years. Employing over 80 personnel; up until now Mustang Marine has been owned by its founders.
