Multiplast (Vannes, 150 employees) is recognised in the construction of giant multihulls and monohulls thanks to their know-how in composite materials.
In 2017 their multihulls generated a lot of talk about them on a global scale, with 2 round the world records already achieved this winter, participation in the America’s Cup and at the event known as The Bridge, a race from Saint Nazaire to New York between 4 maxi-trimarans that Multiplast has built and the liner Queen Mary 2.
Even if the company remains working in the racing boat construction segment, it has also become a high-tech reference in carbon and in prototypes, as well as in parts which are rare, even unique for the aeronautics, defence, transport, luxury, renewable energy and building sectors on behalf of clients such as Airbus, Zodiac Aerospace or Baccarat… At the end of 2016 the construction site inaugurated a 1,600 m² hall in a €3M investment, which fulfills the requirements of the aerospace and aeronautics industries. This hall will therefore be dedicated to the manufacture of aeronautical series parts.
Multiplast wants to grow from 150 to 180 employees by 2020 and become a TWA. In 2015, the company took over Plastinov, which designs and produces standard parts for industry, aeronautics and sailing, as well as Plastéol, specialist in the manufacture of wind turbine blades and nacelles.
