Supermarine Aviation Works
Supermarine started in 1913 as Pemberton-Billing in Southampton, building seaplanes and flying boats. As Supermarine, it found fame when winning the Schneider Trophy three times. This success led to the development of the legendary Spitfire and many other types. In 1928 Vickers-Armstrongs took over the company to become Supermarine Aviation Works (Vickers) Ltd.
