The ship newbuilding is an essential part of the maritime industry, focusing on designing and constructing new ships, as opposed to retrofitting older ones (ship conversion). It’s an industry that constantly evolves to meet the changing demands of global trade, and major players are spread across the globe, including South Korea, China, Japan, Turkey and Germany.

Engineering knowhow and custom parts for Ship Newbuilding

In this dynamic sector, ILS holds a pivotal role. We specialise in creating and supplying innovative lashing solutions, particularly for all kinds of cargo vessels like, bulk, container and RoRo ships. As the industry evolves, so do the requirements for securing cargo – a challenge that we meet head-on. We tailor our lashing equipment to secure cargo for a wide range of ships, thereby ensuring maritime safety and voyage efficiency.

Building a ship is a long and hefty process. As a supplier of fixed and loose lashing materials, we are aware of the fact that we play just a small role in that large waterfall-structured project and that a project manager’s worst nightmare is for this relatively simple item not to be in order. Therefore we strive to deliver as timely as possible, sometimes going the extra mile to make sure not to cause any delays.


Constructing a ship is an intricate and substantial process. As a supplier of fixed and loose lashing materials, we recognize our role within this vast, cascading project. We understand the project manager’s concern about even the simplest component being out of place. Thus, we prioritise prompt delivery.

At ILS, we don’t just provide lashing systems; we bridge the gap between advanced vessel products and the crucial need for safe cargo transportation. By fulfilling this role, we help keep the new shipbuilding sector at the cutting-edge of innovation, all while prioritising cargo safety and integrity.
