    The factory was opened by Saunders-Roe during WW2, where it fitted out Catalina flying boats purchased from the US for the RAF. After the war, products built at the site included patrol boats and minesweepers and also bus bodies for London and Cuba. The site was taken over by Laird (Anglesey) in 1968. One of Laird’s products was the unsuccessful Centaur, a Land Rover-based half-track vehicle. In 1996 FAUN took over their long-standing licensee Laird (nglesey) and in 1997 moved production to its newly built facility in Llangefni.
