North Technology Group to acquire Future Fibres

News International-French

10 Nov 2014

North Technology Group (NTG) announces the acquisition of Future Fibres by Southern Spars. 

Founded 20 years ago by Tom Hutchinson and based in Valencia, Spain, Future Fibres is one of the marine industry leader in high performance carbon cables, masts, booms, spreaders and custom components.

Combining these two industry leaders allows Southern Spars the ability develop additional technology for their list of products, services and high performance solutions, in the marine industry and beyond.

Future Fibres first entered the composite rigging market after Tom Hutchinson devised a way to better terminate composite fibres by continuously winding PBO fibre around two titanium thimbles at any required length. Future Fibres’ approach has allowed composite rigging to be used on every area of the boat and not restricted to just aft rigging as it historically was before.
