NORCO, a leading manufacturer of composite structures and GRP tooling, have been worked in partnership with Diab for over 2 decades. One of the longest running projects which NORCO and Diab have collaborated is the production of all the PVC core kits for the production of Williams Jet Tender Ribs (Hulls, decks & parts). This project has seen over 5,000 hulls and decks produced since 2002 using Diab materials. 

Diab materials
The foam used for the majority of parts and kits is H80 - 6mm GSC30 & GSC15, which is lightweight whilst also not consuming great volumes of resin when primed, consolidated and overlaid. The make-up of the GSC15 & 30 is particularly useful on the hulls with the flexibility to follow the double curvature of the tool and not leave any voids between core and laminate. 
With over 30 years’ experience, NORCO specialize in manufacturing large composite structures and GRP mouldings. The business currently operates from six sites with over 130,000 sq. ft combined capacity in Dorset. 
Williams Jet Tenders is a highly regarded company across the leisure and superyacht sectors and supplies tenders for yacht manufacturers. The Oxfordshire based company offer yacht builders and their clients a range of vessels designed to perform functions from utility boats to high performance water-ski boats. 

Simon Mitchell, the production manager of the Williams Jet Tener Ribs at NORCO, said “Diab’s customer service representatives are always happy to visit and get hands on with first article production & projects along with changes to specifications and templating. This has been extremely beneficial to ensure cuts and mating surfaces are right first time, along with pattern making and suggested materials to suit requirements.” 
Over the years, we have maintained the quality and customer service to a high standard, which can only aid NORCO in producing the best quality product for their customers. 

Success factors:
DIAB’s material and the support to the customer.
