PYP acquires Hydrasud in La Ciotat

ADVERTISEMENT

Performance Yacht Painting (PYP) has acquired Hydrasud activities at the shipyard in La Ciotat in the South of France. Founded more than 10 years ago within the La Ciotat shipyards, Hydrasud was one of the first sub-contractors to establish its business in the area following the reconversion of the Normed shipyard.

The new site features a sand blasting shed as well as an atmospherically controlled paint shed.

This acquisition complements PYP’s existing business at the yard.
