About Griffon Hoverwork
Griffon Hoverwork Ltd (GHL) is at the forefront of hovercraft development and has been involved in the manufacture and operation of hovercraft since they were first conceived, over 50 years ago. Our customers "fly" our hovercraft in all 5 continents and we support over 200 GHL craft in over 41 countries.
Owned and supported by the Bland Group, the company has achieved strong growth. We relocated our main manufacturing facility from Hythe to Merlin Quay, Southampton UK at the beginning of 2011, in order to increase our manufacturing capacity. We now use lean techniques to design and manufacture high quality hovercraft for practical applications.
In the commercial role, our hovercraft are used around the globe for:
- survey work and civil engineering support
- logistics and cargo carrying
- passenger ferries
- coastal, ice and airport crash rescue
- mobile medical clinics
Our hovercraft are also in use by those responsible for national security and military operations, missions include:
- border patrol and surveillance
- policing and customs duties
- marine interdiction and infra structure security
