It was nice to see our name in the local Teignmouth Post newspaper over the weekend!
Sleeman & Hawken was mentioned in their ‘50 Years Ago’ section, so the story related to 1972!
It detailed how a Teignmouth boatman was delivering two trawlers to Lagos, Nigeria, to be used as shrimp trawlers off the African coast. The trawlers were built on the Humber and were fitted out with special equipment in Teignmouth by Sleeman & Hawken.
Sleeman & Hawken was incorporated in 1958 and has been in the industry for almost 65 years, with our Managing Director Keith Mason still in the business after 50 years (and counting!).
