    As well as continuous in-house training on the most advanced techniques, they also receive training and information from the paint manufacturers themselves on each successive innovation and development. The PYP team's unique know-how guarantees customers unparalleled excellence.

    PYP technicians also work on direct assignment at boat moorings throughout Europe.

  • Each mission is coordinated by a project manager, who interfaces with the customer and oversees the project as regards quality, budget and timeframe.

    The project manager checks the quality of work, making sure all coats are carried out compliant with the technical specifications for each product used. He documents the whole of the process with precision on a daily basis, logging data such as product batch numbers, mix ratios, and temperature and humidity readings before, during and after application.

    Each project obeys a strict process of reporting to the PYP management, the shipyard and the customer, to ensure meticulous compliance with initial specifications.
