The Weselmann-Kümo Hanseat built in 1950 (construction number 67)

On April 15, 1900, Franz Jozwiak and Georg Heribert Pohl leased the business from Theo Beckedorf in Hamburg-Waltershof , which was located in the area of ​​today's Rugenberger Schleuse . He had a shipyard, a smithy and a workshop. Two days later, Pohl & Jozwiak received a trade license . Theo Beckedorf, who ran his own salvage company, initially provided his tenants with repair orders. In 1910 the site had to be abandoned due to the construction of the Rugenberg lock. The company Pohl & Jozwiak then moved to Tollerortweg on an old shipyard belonging to the Emil Körner company. On January 31, 1910, the shipyard was registered under commercial law as an OHG .

Pohl & Jozwiak was able to lease the new property in Tollerort from the city of Hamburg for an initial period of 30 years. The lease was always extended to the end of the yard in December 1995 with the same term and enabled the owners to make larger investments. Even before the outbreak of World War I, Pohl & Jozwiak took over the neighboring Butzkowski and Körner shipyards. After the takeover, the company had four slipways and six helges . Herbert Jozwiak, the son of Franz Jozwiak, joined the company in 1922. In 1931 Pohl & Jozwiak acquired a 51% stake in the Beckedorf salvage company, which Herbert Jozwiak took over. The shipyard received additional repair orders through the rescue company.

In the final stage, the shipyard had an enclosed area at the southern end of the coal ship port on the east side with a small dock with a lifting capacity of 1200 tons and a dock with a lifting capacity of 2400 tons bought by Blohm + Voss , which could be coupled with the small dock. as well as a somewhat strange-looking access bridge. It was an extended road bridge from Entenwerder . The shipyard also included a 120-meter quay, various halls, buildings, four slipways and six helges.

Due to the shipyard crisis in the 1980s, the shipyard got into difficulties and the location was relocated to the Blohm + Voss shipyard in 1995/96, but without floating docks.

From 1999, the coal ship port was washed up with Elbe sand and the site became part of the Tollerort container terminal . The buildings were demolished in 2001.

However, the main business of Pohl & Jozwiak remained repairs and modifications. In 1938 and 1940, respectively, the shipyard delivered the new passenger ships Richard Wagner (№ 30) and Franz Schubert (№ 32) to the Hamburg-Blankeneser-Este Line. From 1941 to 1943, a rescue vehicle, sixteen flight operations boats and a diving vehicle were built for the Air Force.

From 1946 the shipyard built, among other things, several barges and harbor ferries, some Kümos and two pilot transfer boats . Two cargo ships to manufacture shipping company Poljo for the new company-owned, the company acquired the hulls of two tugs , in April and October 1944, the Norderwerft had arisen. The hulls were used for the construction of the Kümos Heilbronn (№ 70) delivered in July 1952 and the Kümos Hansestadt Hamburg (№ 71) delivered in November 1952 . From 1953 to 1956 the shipyard produced the harbor ferries Kehrwieder (№ 72), Blankenese (№ 74), Steinkirchen (№ 75) and Jollenführer 3 (№ 76) for HADAG . This was followed in 1957 by the Kümo Peter Saxberg (No. 77) ordered by a Danish shipowner , the pilot transfer boats Julius DA Marxen ( No. 78) and Adolph AH Fokkes ( No. 79) and a tank barge. The new building business came to a standstill in the same year, only in 1964 another Schute (№ 81) was delivered. The Pohl & Jozwiak shipyard remained active in the repair and conversion business. Her main customers in the late 1950s included several tugboat companies . From the mid-1960s onwards, the company also increasingly carried out conversions and maintenance work on dredgers ( cutter dredgers , bucket chain dredgers and hopper dredgers ).
