Allspars expands with new workshop in Cornwall
Rigging company, Allspars has expanded with a new workshop in Falmouth, Cornwall.
The new workshop is the company’s third location, joining its Plymouth HQ at MDL’s Queen Anne’s Battery Marina and its Solent branch at Premier Marina Swanwick.
The Falmouth branch will be run by Matt Pullen, who has won National, European and World Championship sailing titles in the Dart 18 class.
“I first got involved in the marine industry whilst still at school working in the family business. After leaving school my interests were definitely in sailing and therefore rigging was the perfect job for me. I was very lucky in serving my apprenticeship with a local rigging guru who I worked with for over 10 years,” says Pullen.
“My views on quality of work and customer service fall perfectly in line with the outstanding reputation of Allspars and I am incredibly excited to be part of the Allspars family. The support along with the impressive production and fabrication facilities of the Plymouth HQ will be vital in providing a range of work that belies the size of our current workshop. The availability of stock and spares from within the group, will allow us to sort rigging problems in a timely fashion, rather than having to wait for manufacturers to deliver from around the world with all the delays that can often mean.”
Allspars began in Plymouth in 1997, opening its second workshop on the Hamble in 2014 which now employs a team of six.
