Astilleros de Sestao, Spain

The world of shipbuilders is one of frequent mergers, closures and so on. With regard to Astilleros it has a similar little complicated history (particular for a non-Spanish outsider :).
In 1908 Astilleros Españoles S.A. (AESA) was created from the La Naval (military yards) and the civil yards of Matagorda or Sestao.
In 2000 IZAR was founded as a result of a merger of Astilleros Españoles S.A. (AESA) and Empresa Nacional Bazán. In 2005 IZAR in turn was taken over by the new Spanish kid on the block, Navantia.

The above was distilled from Wikipedia, so I hope it was correct and complete... if not... let me know!
