The Vulcan Shipbuilding and Engineering Co / Aktien-Gesellschaft Vulcan Stettin

AG Vulcan, Stettin was a German shipbuilding and locomotive building company.

Founded in 1851, it was located near the former eastern German city of Stettin, today Polish Szczecin.

1896 See the Works review in The Engineer 1896/06/05.

1901 The enterprise had share capital greater than that of any other combined shipbuilding and locomotive works in Germany.

1907 Because of the limited facilities in Stettin, an additional yard was built in Hamburg.

The now named Vulcan-Werke Hamburg und Stettin Actiengesellschaft constructed some of the most famous civilian German ships and it played a significant role in both World Wars, building warships for the Kaiserliche Marine and the Kriegsmarine later.[1]
