Shipbuilding company ABG Shipyard (India) has a substantial order book. Engaged in the manufacture and repair of ships for commercial and government customers, ABG plans to expand its operations. This large private company looks attractively priced to make the best of both the growing business opportunity and a stock market – the shipyard is planning a public issue. The industry in which ABG is operating is set to take a giant leap in coming years. Focus of international shipbuilding is expected to shift to the Asian countries such as India and China mainly due to low labour costs as shipbuilding is labour intensive.

The local industry growth is partly due to the new project "Sagar Mala" initiated by the Indian government for the development of the country’s maritime sector which is likely to result in an estimated additional demand for 2,500 new ships. The company expects to put up capacities to build vessels up to 120,000 DWT and commission the same in 2008. Already, it has entered into an agreement with Irving Shipbuilding (Canada) to acquire shipbuilding machinery having an estimated life of at least 20 years. It owns a shipyard at Magdala near Surat close to the banks of the river Tapi spread across 35 acres. Currently, it can manufacture ships of a maximum length of 155 metres and a maximum weight of 20,000 DWT. Currently, ABG has an order book position of 27 ships and these orders are to be executed over the next three years.
