of Scotland, Member of LOBINITZ GROUP OF COMPANIES, comprising SIR J.H.BILLS & CO. L TD, who are advisers to IFC, WORLD BANK, ADS, ISLAMIC DEVELOPMENT BANK etc. has its origins in the mid 191+1 Century when Edwin Clark, who had already been involved in the design of a number of early hydraulic lift type floating dock set up a company to built floating docks. The first dock was constructed in the year 1857 at the Victoria Dock, London.
In the year 1873 John Standfield who had by then already come to prominence for his work in the design & building of pontoon type bridges joined hand with Edwin Clark, resulting in the now familiar name of Clark & Standfield. Latimer Clark, brother of Edwin Clark, an Engineer of considerable note, part responsible for establishing the names of electrical units: OHMS, FARADS, VOLTS and inventor of the CLARK CELL and also instrumental in the creation of Institute Of Electrical Engineers, joined the company. With the advent of iron replacing wood, it became possible for floating docks to be designed capable of lifting mighty steel structured ship at a very competitive cost because of its edge over Graving dock in reliability, mobility & cost effectiveness etc. (as stated hereinafter) and thus it became increasingly difficult for the Graving docks to remain competitive in the market of ship repairing.
The continuous success of Clark & Standfield in repairing of ships using Floating type dry dock soon established this company as the leaders in this field. In fact Clark & Standfield was mainly responsible for generating the acceptance and developing the full potential of floating docks.
It was Clark & Standfield only who in the year 1973 provided assistance to Lloyds Register of Shipping to bring out the 1973 Rules & Regulations for the construction and classification of Floating Docks.
The success of Clark & Standfield's floating docks and their considerable inventness has led to numerous patent designs and has established the company as the foremost authority on the design and construction of floating docks. As on date with a record some 200 floating docks designed and constructed with a combined total lifting capacity well in excess of 1 million tonnes and with world patent of over a dozen of different types of floating docks, Clark & Standfield remains THE LEADER and unmatched by any company IN THE WORLD
