Each decade since the 80’s has seen hyde make significant advancements taking opportunities to develop and grow its business while maintaining its core values of performance, quality, service and technology.
1980’s – MANUFACTURER’S ONE-DESIGNS
Hyde’s reputation for consistency makes them a logical choice for any true one-design dinghy or keelboat. This market developed during the 80’s and remains at the core of Hyde’s business, with Laser, RS and Topper among their long term customers. Developing this business area is a priority for the future.
1990’s – YACHT SAILS
Hyde entered the custom yacht market and this is now the fastest growing sector of the business. Hyde now cover the whole spectrum of yacht sails from Grand Prix racing to blue water cruising.
2000 – OFFSHORE MANUFACTURING
Hyde established a sail loft in the far-east like many manufacturing businesses to pass on the benefits of low production costs to their customers. The factory is wholly owned by Hyde and all the 250 staff are Hyde employees ensuring that the operation retains the same values and ethos as when manufacturing was based in the UK
