Hyde Sails has opened a new South Coast UK office in the world yachting capital of Hamble.
The opening of Hyde’s new South Coast office follows the establishment of an East Coast office, at Fox’s Marina in Ipswich, earlier in the year. The two offices will act as hubs for Hyde’s distribution network and management teams overseeing the UK loft network and co-ordinating strategy globally.
Hyde’s Managing Director, Nigel Grogan, explained: “The two offices will provide the physical presence in both key locations for the support of our distributor network. Full sales and logistic support can be sought from them regarding sales, sail design, accessories, architectural products, covers and repairs as well as providing the management hub for our international customers whether retail, own label or boat manufacturer.”
A growing network
The offices pilot Hyde’s corporate look and will be the template for Hyde’s growing network of Distributors in the UK and abroad. Hyde’s network spreads on the south coast from Cornwall to Kent, and around the country, including distributors in Wales and the north of England and a strong network in Scotland.
Internationally Hyde is represented in over 20 countries. A network of lofts now covers large areas of the USA, Australia and the Far East, while Europe is widely covered from Scandinavian distributors to Ireland, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Turkey and Hungary to name but a few.
