As a country with hundreds of rivers running through its veins, it’s no wonder Bangladesh has ship building skills in its blood. Dockyard and Engineering Works ltd. began their humble journey as ‘Narayanganj Dockyard Limited’, as the first ever of the Indian Sub-Continent, on 1926. And after an eventful journey of three different regimes including British Colonial, East Pakistan and finally independent Bangladesh, it has shunned its skills of shipbuilding for more than a century. Now under the expert hands of Bangladesh Navy from 2006, it has seen immense growth and success going forward.
