Q. When did you start working with Flexiteek and why did you choose Flexiteek?
I started working with Flexiteek in 2007/2008. I chose Flexiteek because it seemed at the time to be the most advanced and best esthetically looking product, the fact and on the back side of it you had a dove tail routing made a lot of sense to me that it would create a better adhesion to the deck.
Q. What did you need Flexiteek to do for you, on which boats and where was it specified/installed?
Initially we were building first superyacht tenders that needed decking on that but also a couple of promotional boats for B&G and Garmin.
Q. As a partner, what do you value the most about Flexiteek?
I think any partnership is a combination of a number of elements and firstly obviously the product has to be correct, it is irrelevant if people are great and the product isn’t good enough, so is a combination of good product, good staff, good fitting services. We had a problem with one of the fittings and Rob flew out to Croatia to sort it out so the level of back-up and support is excellent. I am happy with the product, happy with the service and happy with the back-up service.
Q. What do your clients think about Flexiteek?
We have not had any complaints so I can only assume that they are very happy.
