1966 The engineering works of John Brown and Co were separated from the shipyard by the creation of a new company John Brown Engineering (Clydebank) Ltd while the shipyard continued under the name John Brown & Co (Clydebank) Ltd
"John Brown and Co (Clydebank) Ltd states that consideration of the future, particularly in light of the Geddes Report, has led to a decision by the board of John Brown and Co, fully supported by the board of John Brown and Co (Clydebank) Ltd., to separate a substantial part of the engine works from the shipyard and form this as a separate company, directly subsidiary to John Brown and Co. The installation of ship's machinery, including both office and shop work, will be transferred to shipyard control and integrated with corresponding shipyard work. Other engine works' activities, both marine and non-marine. will become the responsibility of the new company, which will be named The Clydebank Engineering Co."
