Leander is well suited to the frigate global market

Cammell Laird has a global reputation for the quality of its ships. There is real meaning to 'Laird Built'. We have a near perfect track record of 'on Budget' and 'on Time' delivery. We are transparent, honest and keep our promises. We work hard for repeat business. We are the prime contractor for 'Leander' and this ensures we bring our entrepreneurial approach, commercial mindset, private sector capacity and agility.

BAE Systems has a global reputation for military exports and complex programme delivery.  The wider strength of the UK naval supply chain also ensures we can rapidly adjust to customer requirements and specific needs.

The Cammell Laird and BAE Systems teamwork has been proven and deepened on a string of successful projects over the last decade: aircraft carrier block building, submarine block building, T45 power improvement project bid etc. The strength, depth and warmth of the relationship is proven by our ongoing mutual support is areas such as labour sharing, knowledge transfer and even the BAE Systems loan of their launchways for use on the Sir David Attenborough. Our teamwork/partnering is the National Shipbuilding Strategy in action.
