Quick S.p.A. is a leader company in Italy and worldwide in manufacturing accessories for sailing boats and yachts. It begins in the early 80s as an initiative by some professionals with training and expertise acquired in the Comar shipyard, manufacturer of the legendary Comets. In the same context, made of names destined to become famous, a small company named PM Marina acquired Quick in 1992, and this very association, solid and innovative, will guide the company towards important goals and the development of a wide array of products, from windlasses to thrusters, from battery chargers to nautical boilers, from remote controls to navigation lights, to the Marine Lighting Quick Division, started in 2007

Quick S.p.A., is a point of reference both for quality of products and technological resources able to offer a complete service, from the design to the finished product. Quick was able to manage its own growth by making important decisions such as, for example, the integration of an engineering system, and we are talking about CATT, acquired in 2003. The operative facility, which manufactures mechanical processes and creates molds for plastic materials, is organized with technologically advanced machinery including CAD-CAM stations for designing, different latest generation CNC centres, lathes and other precision devices.
