DNA & Ambition
Karver has a strong DNA, identified since its creation and most of our strategic choices are guided by who we are and what we want to be in 5, 10, 50 years ... this DNA in the fittings is made up of 4 elements : Innovation, performance, design and service.
Innovation is Karver’s starting point. We devote a very important part of our time and our profits in research & innovation. A third of our staff is dedicated to the Design Office. Among the notable innovations of recent years : l The automatic lock on all our KF furlers. l The furling swivel which incorporates an extremely compact halyard hook system (KFH). l High load jammers with 3 jaws when all the other products on the market are equipped with 2. l Mast cars equipped with fuses which prevent the breakage of a batten, a car or the track itself.
All these innovations are protected by patents that we file year after year and have been rewarded with numerous awards.
We make it a point of honor to offer PERFORMING deck equipment :
Lighter, more compact, more resistant, less friction, less maintenance, more practical … KARVER deck equipment applies to all our customers because everyone finds their interest : weight and friction are for example 2 elements which interest racers and boaters for different reasons. Some are looking for weight saving and a low friction rate to go faster when others are satisfied with the level of comfort while taking advantage of the potential speed gain.
The technical characteristics of our products are of course of interest to our professional, semi-professional or amateur racing customers, but also to all boaters. We believe in performance that is useful and beneficial to all. Weight and friction are for example 2 elements that interest racers and boaters for different reasons. Some are looking for weight saving and a low friction rate to go faster when others are satisfied with the level of comfort while taking advantage of the potential speed gain.
A standard KF2 or KF5 furler is also used by 75% of the Class 40 fleet, for example some owners of Océanis 40 or Bavaria 41 Cruiser.
Everyone agrees that our products have a unique design… and we are proud of it.
We have won numerous awards for the design (and innovation) of our products. Without going to extremes, our deck equipment become a real element of differentiation. A recent survey of our customers proves that 56% of them choose Karver for their unique design.
The first product designed and then marketed by Karver was the round KB block ! A real revolution which is now the recurring emblem of our company. In 2014, we created the KJ high load jammer, which once again disrupts both visual and user habits.
Here is a concept used and reused to the point of not really understanding what is behind this word. We start from a simple and obvious observation : Without client, we are nothing.
Specificity of our company : we are aware of this and we are organizing ourselves so that our greatest reward is their loyalty.
This translates into availability, listening, advice, constant Quality, quick answer times, an answer adapted to the level of each of the simplest questions (what can a furler be used for) to the most complex (I want to be able to operate the furler of my 100-foot racing trimaran alone and with as little effort as possible).
