Innovation, development, results
Truly made in France. The quest for the highest quality since the very beginning 18 years ago has only been made possible by developing and manufacturing the primary materials and sails in France, giving unparalleled quality-control. All Purpose is unique in delivering "made in France" sails, with approximately 80% (materials and workforce) coming from France. The company works closely with CLM on the development of the Trilam ® membrane manufacturing process.
All Purpose sail loft founded in 1996 in La Trinité-sur-Mer, in South Brittany, France
Brice Berthier and François Lamiot created All Purpose in 1996 in La Trinité-sur-Mer. In 2003, Rémi Aubrun joined the sail loft as co-director. In 2010, the company opened up its capital for further innovation and growth, with Julien Texier joining as the fourth co-director. Find out more about the team…
In 2013, the company moved to Carnac, 2 kms from La Trinité sur Mer, in a new sail loft twice as big as the former one.
Innovation delivers results
All Purpose’s ambition to deliver the best product, custom sails in particular, has resulted in the design and build of highly technical sails and products. It is for this reason that in 2003 the company invested in CLM to develop Trilam® patented membranes. We have been testing and using this high performance innovative technology ever since. Our collaboration with CLM has been rewarded with many top results on the water.
This innovative All Purpose technology has since been extended to other racing boats and cruising boats.
All Purpose EIG created in 2009
The creation of the EIG (Economic Interest Group) combined seven sail lofts, all of which operate under the All Purpose brand, located on the Atlantic, Channel and Mediterranean coasts of France. The group also includes the AP Canvas & Upholstery specialist.
The group is able to capitalise on its broad expertise and sailing experience to best serve each customer’s requirements, offering all the advantages of a large structure while retaining the best of craftsmanship. We pool our talent and financial resources to offer you greater innovation in the design and manufacture of high-tech sails to meet the needs of your projects.
