Offer to RIBnet supporters

Any RIBnet supporters who are in the vicinity of our factory just off the A303 in Wincanton Somerset are more than welcome to visit us and have a conducted tour of our 32,500 square foot manufacturing facilities. You will be able to see how tubes are cut and buffed on our CNC machine, then assembled, and how they are fitted to hulls. Advice on repairs etc will be freely given by our 50 strong team, some of whom have been with us for over 25 years. Please feel free to drop by during normal working hours, and meet our friendly and knowledgeable staff

You are free to help yourself to a good fix. I do every morning, sets me up for the day!! Any visitors will also be able to help themselves to Hypalon fabric "off cuts" from our scrap bins. Saves sending it to the landfill site.
