Future Fibres is pleased to announce the creation of Future Fibres Italy, a dedicated sales and support office to cater for one of the largest yachting markets in Europe. While Future Fibres already has a strong presence in Italy with long term customers such as Wally Yachts, Future Fibres Italy will focus on bringing the same level of support to all Italian based yards, designers and yacht owners.
At the heart of the operation is Francesco Pizzuto who will be heading up Future Fibres Italy. Francesco has supported Future Fibres for a number of years through Velamania, Future Fibres´ existing service agent. His new role is sales centric, fulfilling the increasing demand for high quality composite rigging and carbon spars in the Italian market.
Future Fibres is very excited to announce the completion of contracts for wing manufacture and assembly for Artemis Racing´s AC72 in their challenge for the 34th America´s Cup in San Francisco in 2013.
Having set out from scratch, just one year ago, to create a world class carbon spar manufacturing facility, next door to the existing composite rigging factory in Valencia, Spain, this contract sends a very clear message to the world that Future Fibres is committed to taking mast and rigging development to the next level.
In a fairly significant development, Future Fibres is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with leading mould specialist Persico Spa to design and build carbon masts for high-end customers in the grand prix race and superyacht markets.
The new venture, Future Spars, opened its doors for business this July, with the installation of a 50 metre autoclave, in a new factory next door to Future Fibres’ rigging facility in Valencia.
