Southern Spars’ One Design manufacturing facility is located in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The 2500m2 premises is shared with sister company Composite Rigging and the organisation benefits from North Manufacturing Group’s many years of experience building sails in Sri Lanka. The facility is focussed on the production of high volumes of One Design class rigs to the highest quality and consistency.
Carbon fibre tubes are produced using Axial Filament Laying (AFL) technology, which is a filament winding process that utilises “true zero” axis fibres. The facility also uses a 4 axis CNC routing machine with a 10 metre bed and lathe axis to precision machine all tubes and parts. The product design takes place in New Zealand, assisted by our AFL technology partner, CompoTech (Czech Republic).
The market focus is on high performance dinghies, sports-boats and keelboats where high production volumes suit the manufacturing process. Current products include 49’er, Elliott6m, Melges 20, M34, VX One Design and J/70.
