|Established in 1946 as Ulmer Sails., UK Sailmakers is one of the oldest
group of lofts in North America. Over 60 years later, the UK Sailmakers
group has over 50 lofts and service centers around the world. UK
Sailmakers has been on the leading edge of sail development ever since
the late ’40s when Ulmer Sails dominated the Star class, 5.5 Meter,
Snipe, Lightning and Comet one-design classes.
In the spring of 2005, UK Sailmakers merged with the Halsey-Lidgard
group of sailmakers. The merger of two of the premiere sail brands
formed one of, if not the, most comprehensive sailmaking organizations
in the world. Although this ranks UK Sailmakers as one of the largest
sailmaking operations in the world, the purpose of this merger was to be
able to deliver the best sails of highest quality using most advanced
technologies, to customers - wherever they are or they sail - anywhere
around the world.
