North Sails Ireland Salute Richard Marshall and Team for Front Line Supplies

Here at North Sails Ireland we are delighted to work with Richard Marshall and his Marshall Marine Textiles Team for the service arm of our business. Richard is a very experienced sailor in his own right and a magician when it comes to repairing sails or working with any type of fabrics.

Our local team has been working with Richard since 2004, when North Sails Ireland was founded. It quickly became apparent to me that there is nothing [and I mean nothing!] that Richard and his team at Marshall Marine Textiles cannot do with fabrics.

It was no surprise to me to find him supplying PPE to the front line long before anyone else had even thought about it! Not one to blow his own trumpet, Richard was very slow getting the message out to the World about what he was up to as he was unbelievably busy

Now in a very short time Richard and the team have produced thousands of items with many more on order from the HSE. It’s hard to keep up with him in number terms but I normally talk to him a couple of times a week just to check in. This week he passed a major milestone having sewn over 10,000 pieces of PPE equipment in record time!

Here at North Sails Ireland we would like to salute Richard and his team for the amazing work and we are extremely proud to be working together for the last 17 years. We have had some very interesting times together over the years but I have to say that this current period is one that none of us will ever forget.

Keep up the great work, you guys are truly amazing!
