GYG plc signs distribution agreement with scaffolding systems company ALTRAD plettac assco GmbH

Offered By Pinmar

GYG plc has announced that it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with ALTRAD plettac assco GmbH to distribute its specialised scaffolding equipment in the USA.

This agreement greatly benefits GYG’s scaffolding brand, Technocraft, which pioneered the development of yacht scaffold and containment systems within the industry in Europe, with plans for expansion into the US.

The ALTRAD plettac assco range of products are known to be among the highest European quality and comply with all the required health and safety regulations, having been granted several European licenses. The versatility and reliability of its system allows the scaffold to be adapted to the most unique yacht constructions and layouts, which is essential for creating a secure containment environment around a superyacht for refit works.

The advanced modular construction technique allows for the entire scaffold structure to be hung from the yacht itself, removing the dependency on floating raft bases when conducting an in-water refit, which in turn allows for much larger yachts to be repainted in the water.

GYG’s initial focus to distribute ALTRAD plettac assco products will be in the south east of the US, where it is currently operating in many of the leading refit shipyards.

Remy Millott, CEO of GYG, explained, “GYG is delighted to be bringing a single brand scaffold system that has recognised European standards and better performance to shipyards in the US. It gives us great confidence when performing a turnkey Pinmar refit knowing the underlying containment system is of the highest quality and security. This is a significant opportunity for the Group to work with ALTRAD plettac assco and be able to offer their cutting-edge scaffold equipment into one of the world’s largest yacht and non-yacht markets.”

This agreement comes at the perfect time to complement the new partnership forming between Technocraft and US-based Southern Cross Boat Works. Pinmar has worked with and trusted them for many years, providing scaffolding services in some of the largest shipyards in the US such as Rybovich, Derecktor and Savannah Yacht Center.

GYG stated that the collaboration will ensure that its range of products are the ultimate solution for any refit project.
