VC Metalwork in Palma de Mallorca has doubled its workspace to 350 square metres with the acquisition of a workshop immediately adjacent to its existing site in Son Castello.

Founded by Vicente Libertini, VC Metalwork has been providing service to superyachts since 2008. In 2013, Libertini invited ex superyacht and J-Class captain James King to join the team, and since then the company has expanded its workforce employing four more fabricators. The new workshop is part of this expansion plan. In addition to the new site, the company has also purchased a range of new machines.

Commenting on the announcement, commercial director James King says: “We have invested considerably to bring all services in house which ultimately reduces build times and increases control of the quality. Our new facility means that we are able to separate our polishing and grinding areas to a fully extracted zone leaving the fabrication workshop free of contaminants.

With the most experienced team of fabricators on the island and now one of the best facilities we are well placed to continue our structured growth to meet the increasing demand of the industry both locally and abroad,” he concludes.

VC Metalwork in Palma de Mallorca designs and fabricates components for the superyacht industry. The company specialises in marine and aerospace materials including Titanium, 17-ph4, Nitronic 50, Duplex 2205, and hybrid plastics.
