T Nielsen and Company is one of the world’s leading specialists in repairing, restoring, building traditional ships and rigging. They have been established in 1988 in Gloucester Docks. The management team collectively has well over 100 years of traditional shipbuilding, restoration, engineering and rigging expertise, and to back this up they employ an experienced team of well trained, qualified craftsmen including shipwrights, riggers, marine engineers and blacksmiths. The company has a strong track record of recruiting apprentices and encourages staff development at all levels. As well as traditional shipbuilding and restoration, T-Nielsen also developed a worldwide reputation for providing film and TV studios with specialist skills when marine structures, rigging and boats are required on set. They have extensive wet and dry dock facilities in Gloucester, which is the hub for our operations, although their skilled craftsmen work all over the world on specialist restoration projects.
