What our customers have to say

MARINE

“Oceania Aviation approached C-Tech in order to find a solution for the manufacture of carbon fibre spray booms for our AS350 Spray systems. The team came up with tapered hollow booms that fitted our brief perfectly, and we have now been using their manufacturing services for a number of years. The quality and service provided by C-Tech’s engineering staff is always of a high standard and they are a great team to work with.”

AUTOMOTIVE

"C-Tech have really stepped our programme up another level this year, contributing greatly to getting our car down 20kg on last season! Their carbon is second to none in terms of both looks and strength! It has held up flawlessly to a lot of abuse while running on tracks with both rocks and large clumps of dirt. The perfect option to step up your race programme next season!"

"C-Tech's extensive experience and up-to-the-minute knowledge of everything composites has been invaluable to Wing in development of all-new manufacturing techniques. And their strong relationships with suppliers brings access to customised materials solutions that otherwise couldn't have contemplated"

"We approached C-Tech with a unique design challenge to fabricate the structure of a kinetic interactive installation. The 18m long object needed to be lightweight and deployable for easy transport, while featuring a cantilever of 12m. The highly competent team at C-Tech was absolutely great to work with and delivered an impeccable solution."

"C-Tech's flexibility in design and build, combined with a willingness to collaborate on ideas, helped in producing the best components for our needs, giving us the best results"

"Working with C-Tech for the past year has been an absolute joy. In a development class like the Moth, adapting quickly to the latest developments is absolutely essential to stay on top of the fleet and C-Tech has constantly been looking for new ways to get every single bit of performance out of the boat"

Nicolai Jacobsen
MARINE

"C-Tech have done an awesome job. We raced the state title on the weekend and the boat felt fast, getting a 5th, 1st and 3rd". Not bad considering I put the mast on the boat on Thursday and finished building the main Thursday night."

Scott Beeby
MARINE

"I used the new mast for the first time today with a Wavelength sail, the same sail I have been using. I just can’t get over how different the boat feels. I can’t tell you what the mast was doing that was different but it just felt good. Very happy. I’ll say it again the C Tech masts are just so superior over anything else."

Paul Cohen
MARINE

"I'm really impressed with the mast and sail combination. I do feel this mast suits the sail even better than the old mast. The bend is incredibly even for/aft and stiffer sideways but still an even bend. Just massive steps forward. The pressure in the main sheet is impressive. The sail shape is bloody wonderful. Very even break all along the luff, top of sail opens up perfectly in a puff while the bottom half remains with excellent closure/ return in the leech. She just wants to accelerate forward."

Geoff Fisher
MARINE

"The boat is going well in any conditions, which is great: we are super-fast with no wind, it is a true lake racer! But we also handled steady 25 knots going upwind with good speed. To beat the football team it needs above 12 knots of wind and foils, lets see next year."

"It has been a pleasure to work with C-Tech on this project - We are happy to have them as partners"

"We've had our C-Tech SnuffAir for 12 months now and have used it flawlessly. It's even better than I expected actually, this is a massive sail and personally I don't think you could beat this."

Dougall Love

"It has been a game changer switching to FlexiFurls. They have given us true race performance in our furling sails. Also the service has been tops, so really happy all around."

Peter Homberg
MARINE

"We have used your product for many years and you know we call your battens a bit of a magic wand. They are a tool, but are hidden within the sail and you don't see them. Just like there are so many bad tools out there, there are also many bad battens. C-Tech battens are the tool that can actually make a bad sail look better, and make a good sail look great."

"WOW! When the order arrived not just on time but... ahead of time!"

"Slick building time and slick delivery."

John Butcher

"The reassurance I've had in dealing with Tim makes me feel like I'm in very good hands. And because of service and guidance I decided early on to proceed with commissioning a new boom and spinnaker pole also to go with the mast."
