Rigging Projects Ltd announces the appointment of Scott Gray as a partner in the company, in a move that adds considerable strength and knowhow to the rapidly growing rigging business.
Specialising in running rigging, Scott has worked as a rigger for winning Volvo Ocean Race teams and his previous company was chosen as the supplier for the entire fleet in the last edition. Scott has worked in the marine industry for over 15 years having started as a spar builder with Southern Spars. More recently he has been specialising in multihull rigging packages which includes working with the current generation America’s Cup yachts right through to the new breed of performance orientated cruising catamarans. As a keen sailor, he has raced everything from J Class yachts to Open 60’s and multihulls.
‘We’re delighted to have Scott on board as he doesn’t just fill the last gap in our service offering, but also strengthens all other areas of our business even further’, says Tobias Hochreutener, founder of Rigging Projects. ‘Scott’s ability to generate a rope spec and to deliver the product at the highest level matches our company’s ethos and aspirations perfectly’, he adds.
Based on the UK south coast, Scott brings with him a broad and international client base, on which Rigging Projects is hoping to build. His ability to specify and deliver complete rope packages combined with the company’s existing offerings is an exciting prospect for both new and existing clients.

Rigging Projects Ltd is the accumulation of over 30 years of industry experience, of which 20 are at the forefront of composite rigging, spar design and project management. Started by Tobias Hochreutener in 2014, the company quickly grew with the addition of Nick Black in 2016, an accomplished spar designer and project manager and Scott Gray later in the same year. The whole ethos of Rigging Projects is to provide our clients with unbiased, undiluted advice, alongside design, engineering and, ultimately, supply of the right product for the right application. With a background in technical sales (in the rigging sector), we have impeccable connections to all major suppliers allowing us to present our clients with all the suitable options, regardless of budget or performance criteria. Couple this with our in-house design capacity, and we are in a position to supply the perfect package from the deck up, whether you are simply looking for a furling system or a complete new build project.
Based in the UK, with an international clientele, Rigging Projects provides a 360’ service which extends far beyond the design and procurement of equipment and systems – we strive to provide a continued support, managing many of our clients’ hands on service needs, from product service to full rig assembly and stepping.
