Government and Defence

We have extensive experience in working with government departments, navies, prime contractors, and subcontractors, supporting the procurement and operation of a wide range of specialist vessels, including both civil and defence assets.

You will benefit from our commercial experience in the private sector, combined with our understanding of the unique procurement and operational challenges faced by public sector shipbuilding and fleet management projects.

Typical projects include procurement support, technical consultancy, fleet assessment, operational modelling and vessel design, upgrade and refurbishment.

Houlder also deploys teams of security cleared engineers to naval bases and into theatre, to support mission critical handling equipment.
