Brief appearance at Onehunga for The America’s Cup

The America’s Cup made a brief appearance at an Onehunga CNC machining and composite engineering facility last week, accompanied by members of Emirates Team New Zealand who’d come to extend a big thank-you.

Jackson Industries and Emirates Team New Zealand’s onsite build team, lead by Paul Quinn, produced the precision carbon-fibre foils for the high-flying catamaran which last month defeated Oracle Team USA 7 – 1 in Bermuda to bring the Auld Mug back to New Zealand.

“We particularly wanted to bring the Cup to the team at Jackson Industries,” said Emirates Team New Zealand Shore Manager Sean Regan, “as a gesture of appreciation for an incredible job, executed perfectly, against an impossible deadline.”
