Kevin Hunt has joined the Lymington-based prestige RIB builders Scorpion RIBs Ltd as General Manager. He brings 18 years of practical hands-on as well as managerial experience within the marine industry to this important role with particularly relevant experience gained building Ribeye and Ribtec RIBs as Production Manager at Rampart Yachts, and working with Cougar and Pascoe International.
Kevin is relishing the challenge ahead commenting, “I knew from the very first time that I looked around the Scorpion factory that I needed to be part of Patrick Byrne’s, the new owner’s, exciting plans and help to move the company forward. During this recession most companies are looking behind them and all chasing what work they can find, whereas here we are expanding the current range and also taking very influential orders from around the world.
“The team at Scorpion encompasses skills in all areas of the business from in-house tube manufacturing to design and marketing. It is without doubt the best working environment I have worked in since I was first employed way back in 1990. The attention to detail and the pride that our workforce puts in to each boat is second to none and I can see why our clients old and new keep purchasing our boats.”
