Shiori Nagata, president of Yanmar Marine International said “Flexofold is a great company and we are pleased to announce that Flexofold is joining the Yanmar Group. Flexofold and Yanmar are both leaders and strong brands in their respective segments in the recreational marine industry. Together, we will be able to further expand and strengthen our product offerings to sailboat builders, distributors and ultimately sailboat end-users.”

Jack Skrydstrup, founder of Flexofold said: “We are very proud to join the Yanmar Group. The strategic fit between Flexofold’s sailboat propellers and Yanmar’s recreational marine products, including their marine engines, is obvious. Moreover, we share the same entrepreneurial spirit and being part of Yanmar is an excellent move for Flexofold to continue and accelerate its ambitions as a global premium sailboat propeller provider.”
