As England prepares to enter a second period of lockdown from Thursday, we can confirm that A&P Tyne, A&P Tees and A&P Falmouth will remain in full operation.

Since England entered its first lockdown in March, A&P has deployed a number of stringent measures at all three of our UK sites, allowing them to continue essential ship repair and maintenance works for the MoD, Royal Fleet Auxiliary and Seaborne asset community.

David McGinley, Chief Executive Officer of Cammell Laird Ship Repairers and Shipbuilders and Atlantic & Peninsula Marine Services said: “A&P Group’s number one priority has always been to safeguard the safety of our staff, customers and sub-contractors but in the face of the unprecedented challenge of Covid19, it has required even more rigorous checks and practices to ensure our vital work can continue.

“A&P has a clear track record of being able to operate with essential restrictions in place. Customers should be assured they face minimum disruption when visiting our facilities. By deploying strict measures, we have found ways in which we can safeguard our workforce and customers whilst continuing to deliver essential projects.”

A&P Group’s dedicated Covid-19 management team reviews our Covid-19 procedures on a daily basis.
