  • (1888PressRelease) March 30, 2019 - Stationed at Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, the iconic vessel has been fitted with a large cover for the vent cowlings, skylight covers, stairway covers and funnel coats and rams.

    Managing Director John Bland said, “Helping to conserve a vital part of Portsmouth’s naval history has been a defining moment for Tecsew and we were very honoured to be involved in such a prestigious, historical project which leveraged our extensive skills within the marine canvas industry.”

    The company, based in Lee-on-the-Solent on the south coast, was approached by the Historic Ships Conservation Works Coordinator, Roy Smith, in October 2018. The historic warship, built in 1860, was in need of new covers and Tecsew had worked with the dockyard in the past.

    Ally Bland, director of Tecsew, said that finding suitable material that was fire retardant and of the right texture to complement Warrior's age was paramount.

    "It was a real challenge and we knew they would be very strict on quality. But in the end we triumphed and it has been a real honour to be selected for this project," she said.
