Owen Sails are excited to announce the appointment of Murray Caldwell

Murray started his career with Hood Sails in the late 1990’s, then moved to Saturn Sails where he remained until starting up on his own as MC Sails in 2002. In 2004, the loft at Nicholson Hughes came up for sale, which he bought and continued to run successfully, producing a wide range of sails and covers. His reputation for great customer care and dedicated work ethic, along with his many years of experience in sails, covers and rigging, fit in perfectly with us here at Owen Sails. Nicholson Hughes will cease to trade early August.

‘’I am delighted to be joining Owen Sails. They have a great team that delivers quality products, all produced on site and offer an excellent level of service. Owen sails have several drop off points on the Clyde and with additional ones being added in Rhu and Rosneath where we will be providing regular collection and delivery, this will enable us to provide continued great service for my existing customers in all their future needs. I look forward to working with new and existing customers and bringing them the benefits of a well established and successful company.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my customers for their loyalty over the years. This is not the end but a start of a new chapter for me with the ability to offer a continued service to you all.’’
