The year was 1967. 12 years later, a second site was opened in Dallas, and growth continued throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Today, Ullman Sails is represented in 25 countries and has 75 sites. The largest of these is in Cape Town, South Africa, and this is the one we got to visit. There is a staff of 120, and sails of all materials are made here. There's one workshop dedicated to the manufacture of FiberParth membranes. It's also on these floors that the sails for the Leopard range - and many other catamarans built in South Africa - are made. Over the past 30 years, more than 100,000 sails have been produced here! The sailmaker is also diversifying its activities with a clothing range, Six Seven by Ullman.
