Sta-Lok manufactures products for almost every stainless steel wire rope and structural tie rod application, from sailing yacht rigging to architectural building design. The Clipper Race represents the perfect platform to market the brand in countries and markets worldwide and showcase the strength and reliability of products during a gruelling circumnavigation.
Renowned for exceeding its customers’ expectations, delivering awesome customer service, on top of the high-quality products, Sta-Lok aligns with the Clipper Race culture of achieving something remarkable.
Terry Barfield, Managing Director at Sta-Lok said: “It’s fantastic to partner with the Clipper Race for the third time. We see this partnership as the main portal for us to represent our products around the world. What better way to demonstrate reliability and endurance of Sta-Lok to a global market than to partner with this round the world sailing event, which we have done successfully for two editions and are looking forward to the third.
“Seeing the crew sailing in extreme weather and severe sea conditions in the footage that is sent back from the yachts is inspiring! For us, we see that the teams are relying on our fittings to get them safely around the world, and the proudest moment for us is seeing the teams arrive safely back after a circumnavigation.”
This year Sta-Lok Terminals is also celebrating 50 years of manufacturing. James Barfield, Sales Director says: “It’s a really proud moment for us to celebrate this milestone. All of the fittings we manufacture for the Clipper Race are made in the UK, and we’re proud that over the three generations in the family business, we have stayed true to the core elements of our brand- the quality and reliability- which is the key to our success.”
