|Sir George Clark|
The company was established by Frank Workman and George Clark in Belfast in 1880. By 1895 it was the UK's fourth largest shipbuilder and by 1900 it was building transatlantic liners for major customers such as Cunard Line and Alfred Holt. It expanded further to meet demand during the First World War and was acquired by Northumberland Shipbuilding Company in 1918. After Northumberland Shipbuilding Company went into receivership in 1927, Workman, Clark and Company was resurrected only to go into receivership itself in 1935.
