RS Sailing selects McConaghy as their new build partner
RS Sailing have entered into a new partnering relationship with McConaghy for the build of a selection of RS Sailing's small boat and keel boat range.
RS Sailing Managing Director Alex Newton-Southon said: "We are thrilled to be partnering with McConaghy. Their reputation for excellence, their experience in high end composite manufacturing, and the fact that many of our customers already know and trust the McConaghy brand made this an easy decision for us and is what makes this partnership so exciting for the future"
McConaghy will be the build partner for the RS Elite, the RS 500, the majority of RS Sailing's foils, with further projects likely to be added.
Production will be at the same facility that McConaghy is already building for many leading brands, including its partnership as builder of the MACH2 foiling Moth and the WASZP.
Mark Evans, Managing Director of McConaghy, said: "We are excited to be building for RS Sailing. They have an extensive range, they are growing, and they have a worldwide reputation for innovative design and quality. That makes them a perfect fit our production build division.
"Over the last five years we have been continuing to invest in our production build facilities to meet our own growing build volume, but also because we wanted to offer our capabilities and capacity to businesses with other like-minded brands and products. This is an area of our business that I see us growing significantly over the next decade.
"I can see we will be building for more and more brands like RS Sailing that are looking for the same things that our own products demand - the highest quality, decades of composite knowledge, married to high automation, and an industry leading cost structure".
