Marstrom Composite will refocus its business to more industrial production in the carbon fibre industry, building on its long expertise in the field as well as continuing its specialties in mast production and other special projects in the marine sector. The company has changed its ownership structure, board and management. New chairman since June 2013 is Mr. Jan Orest and new CEO since December 2013 is Mr. Olle Särneroth. Mr. Per Wärn, former CEO and cofounder, remains as one of the shareholders with responsibility for Sales and Marketing.
Aston Harald AB will start to take over the manufacture of the M32 as of beginning February 2014. The Aston Harald Group with the M32 Cup has been the biggest single customer of the M32 Catamarans from Marstrom Composite and will now build an organization to produce, sell and serve the sailing market. In the transition there has been, and is, a close co-operation between the companies to produce parts to support the market till production is up and running again in order not let the customer down. Aston Harald plans to have a production up and running shortly to minimize any unnecessary delays.
