Numerous jobs took place at Harland and Wolff! Here are some you might not have thought of...
Boiler Makers: Steam engines were the pioneer of ship power in the 19th century. The heating of water to create the steam was done in large metal boilers crafted by the boilermakers.
French Polishers: Craftsmanship didn’t just lie in welding and carving the body of the ship, but many important processes went into the interiors. French Polishing is the process of applying thin coats of shellac (which has been dissolved in denatured alcohol) and oils to create a deep, shiny, wood finish.
Canal Vessels: Harland and Wolff didn’t just make ships to sail across the ocean, they were also a large manufacturer for the Grand Union Canal Company, creating barges that would carry goods down the UKs canals.
