Poole-based Norco Composites has recently delivered the latest boat to superyacht tender manufacturer Pascoe International. The Southampton-based builder has chosen Norco as its partner of choice to supply composite hulls and decks for its range of larger limousine tenders.
Norco customises every boat by using a whole series of unique implants and mould configurations to produce boat shapes specific to each of Pascoe’s customers, whilst minimising tooling costs, the builder claims.
Commenting on the partnership, Norco MD Mark Northey says: “Due to the nature of their finished product, Pascoe has very demanding customers and it is only by continually reviewing and monitoring product details can we ensure we maintain this high quality output.”
The relationship between Norco and Pascoe is instrumental in the success of every project, and is driven by the requirement from both sides to continually innovate and improve on the manufacturing process.
“One of the things we value from Norco is their willingness to suggest an improvement to the manufacturing process or materials we use, and we really value the fact we can benefit from their knowledge and their proactive approach to improving the product. We see Norco as a key partner in aiding our expansion in the market place,” says Richard Watson, CEO of Pascoe International.
