Hyde Sails have re-opened our sail loft in Cebu, Philippines. The loft is not fully staffed, only 100 staff are back working, down from the usual 300.

Hyde Sails management have put strict distancing and safety measures into place. As our priority is keeping the Hyde Sails Cebu family as safe as possible.

We have a team who are working solely on manufacturing PPE. We have created digital files for gowns/scrubs, of which we are making large batches using the loft's laser cutters. This file can be shared with anybody who would like to also make these items. Please get in touch if you would like access to it.

With regards to Sail and Accessory production, the loft will be working hard to manage orders with items shipping shortly. Again please contact any member of the team about your needs and the Hyde Sails UK team, who are all at work, will be able to help you out.

Stay Safe.
