Work to create a new £1.5million boat building facility at Pembroke Port is underway. The fabrication hall - the first major investment in the Haven Waterway Enterprise Zone - will double the size of the size of workboat construction operations and create more than 100 jobs at Mustang Marine.
It is hoped the expansion will see the operation double in size over the next three years.

Once these buildings are completed we expect to at least double the number of jobs from the more than 100 skilled men and women we have here today. Our company has been built up by the Lewis family and through investment in people, technology and facilities has gone from strength to strength in terms of physical resources as well as financial stability.
– Cllr Jane Phillips, mayor of Pembroke Dock
This is fantastic news for Pembroke Dock as shipbuilding is what the town is known for and the creation of job opportunities is exactly what we need to get the economy moving again and regenerate the town.
