Doyle Sails Italy have opened a new main production loft in Sicily, doubling in size to a 3,000 square metre facility. The larger space will ensure faster and more efficeint production times, as well as allow a bigger capacity for their superyacht projects.
“Our wood work table jumped from 1,000 square metres to over 2,000 square metres,” explains Marco Bruni, production manager. We have built five new production work spaces and have invested in the best machinery.”
The idea to open a bigger loft started in March 2015, Managing Director Salvo D’Amico explains, “In just three and a half years we managed to reach goals that exceeded our initial expectations. This upgrade of our main production loft will allow us to have a better workflow.”
The opening of the Sicilian loft is a part of Doyle Italy’s Mediterrean expansion plan, including a new loft that opened in La Spezia in May 2017 and one in Porto Cervo last April. Not to mention the high-profile sailors that also joined their team last year including Francesco Bruni and Massimiliano Sirena.
“Bringing these top sailing professionals onboard has been a massive investment in our whole team,” says Sales Co-ordinator and Director Mario Giattino, “they have been a key factor for our development as a business. Our goal is to keep getting better, strengthening the international role we have acquired.”
