Originally from Liverpool, Steve Jones’ career started with one of the most famous names in British industry – Cammell Laird – and now works as Operations Director for world renowned ship repair and conversion company A&P Falmouth, located within the Port of Falmouth, Cornwall.
Since the early 90s, Steve has witnessed many ownership changes within the industry.
“Both Cammell Laird and A&P are incredibly successful today due to the hard work of both management and workforce alike. But, without the financial support of Peel, they would be very different companies.
“This industry has given me an amazing career, which started in my home city of Liverpool where I began my career with a four-year apprenticeship with Cammell Laird. My job has taken me overseas, to countries such as Holland, France and Australia, where I gained experience working in other shipyards as well as sampling the culture. Prior to joining A&P, I worked as a Production Manager with Grand Bahamas Shipyard where many of the world’s top cruise ships dock for repairs. Now I’m based in Falmouth which is a beautiful place but I still need to get my Liverpool ‘fix’ every few months to see friends and family.”
