Ullman Sails takes ownership of factory in South Africa

by Ullman Sails 5 Oct 2018 04:00 PDT

While the brand has been around for over 50 years, Ullman Sails has never had a wholly owned and dedicated manufacturing facility to complement its strong brand and great designs, choosing in the past to outsource this.

We can now announce that the Ullman Sails group has taken ownership of one of the largest sail manufacturing factories in the world based in South Africa which finally gives the respected California based company, Ullman Sails International, full control over all aspects of manufacturing and the capacity to invest exponentially in research and development.

The acquisition of this facility has enhanced the value of the global loft network which means that Ullman Sails can guarantee high-quality manufacturing to back-up its market-leading technology at competitive pricing.

When it comes to sails, Ullman Sails understands that one size doesn't always fit all and their experienced sail designers have always worked hard to ensure that they identify exactly what the customer wants so that every sail is a perfect fit. The acquisition of the manufacturing facility will now ensure that these sails are built perfectly.

The group is led by Michael England, as CEO, with a host of respected sailors and sailmakers stretching from Brisbane in Australia to Hawaii.
