As the "Standard Chartered banker" that John refers to in the article, it gives me enormous personal satisfaction to have been a small part of the fantastic journey that John, Chris, Gary and others embarked upon all those years ago. It was evident from the start that they were producing an excellent quality product and going about their business in a highly professional manner. Their success over many years is no surprise and I look forward to continuing to follow the Austal journey into the future. My heartiest congratulations to John and all at Austal.
