    ....... trust that the leading owner of specialised ships has once again placed in us

    Hello everybody!

    For us, the repair of ship "X" constitutes evidence of trust that the leading owner of specialised ships has once again placed in us.

    The situation is as follows:

    One of the companies undertook to repair a very complicated ship that belongs to the aforementioned leading owner.

    The owner has placed his trust in the company, by allowing it to repair his ship to the best of its ability.

    Is my sentence properly formulated or should it sound as follows:

    We regard the repair of ship "X" as evidence of trust that/which the leading owner of specialised ships has once again placed in us.

    or

    We consider the repair of ship "X" (to be) evidence of trust that/which the leading owner of specialised ships has once again placed in us.

    Thank you.

    It's evidence that they like your work and that they think you will do a good job. If you want to use "trust" then try:

    The job we got from Company X is evidence that they trust us to do a good job and finish on time. We want to continue to do good work for them.

    (I don't think it's about trust. I think it's more about reputation.)
