Before 1932 most of Joseph Fisher's new steamers were built by John Fullerton and Company of Paisley, starting with ROSTREVOR in 1890. Of 31 new ships delivered in this period, only two were built elsewhere. When Fullerton closed, Scott & Sons of Bowling received all Fisher's new orders, starting with JASMINE and ROWAN in 1932 and continuing the trees and shrubs naming scheme which had commenced with the YEWS of 1905.
