We selected Phuket Thailand for our export sail loft because
of its key central location for the marine business in the South East
Asia region, its skilled labour force, the ever growing arrival of
visiting yachts from all over the world and the excellent infrastructure
and services on the island. There are daily flights from Phuket
International Airport to worldwide destinations and a dozen flights,
each day, to Bangkok and vice versa. Exporting sails to over 60
countries could not be simpler.
We operate the largest purpose built,
state of the art, sail loft in the world and it is our third in Phuket
and the 12th since the company was formed in 1949. This wholly owned
facility is equipped with the best and latest technologies and houses
one of the largest sail cloth inventories of any sail loft in the world.
In addition over 95% of what is installed on a sail, is made in-house.
The company operates Toshiba Electric Plastic Injection Moulding Machines to
produce slugs, slides, headboards, etc. Herzog rope making machines
for bolt ropes and luff tapes, as well as for halyards and sheeting rope
and on the rear ground floor there is a 2000m2, mast and rigging
division. With the public restaurant, the large and extensively
stocked chandlery, the company has become a one stop shop for all the
sailors’ needs, but sail making has remained the hard core of the
Visitors to the loft are welcomed with open arms: which is why the
first time you enter, you will be greeted by our receptionist and if you
wish to take refreshment before asking to be shown round there is a
wide range of drinks available at the centrally featured coffee bar. We
like our visitors to be able to enjoy the experience of watching sails
being made, in a truly warm and friendly atmosphere.
