We are a highly-motivated team of people with a passion for canoes and kayaks (we even have an Italian champion among us). Kplast is a young and dynamic company established in 2008, building on over 25 years of experience and specialisation with our parent company, initially making over 60 models of canoes and kayaks for well-known European brands.
It was the passion and desire to design and build even better canoes and kayaks that motivated us to create the EXO brand, so we could control the manufacturing process from start to finish ourselves.
Our canoes and kayaks are designed and made in Italy: something our many customers both home and abroad have told us they appreciate very much and which also gives us great pride and satisfaction.
An even greater source of satisfaction is the feedback we get from paddlers, from beginners starting their first canoeing adventures to polo teams or individual professionals, often in extreme conditions, who take part in international competitions with excellent results.
We also are proud to have our own polo team “SestriSulMare” and “Exo Extreme Team” which takes an active part in extreme kayak competitions in many countries. This way we try to support and develop this great sport by catering both to the neophyte as well as the top-level kayaker.
We could end by describing how our technical office uses avant-guard technology, such as 3D computer models or computerised number controlled molds, but what really makes this whole process magical, something after so many years we never tire of, is when we see one of our boats racing down a mountain torrent, or an Exo sea kayak disappearing into the distance… with or without a sunset in Sestri Levante(check Google images to see). That’s magical and what really makes it all so worthwhile.
In conclusion, our attention to detail and quest for excellence, using sophisticated materials and innovative engineering solutions, means we are often asked to produce top-quality rotational molding products in the furniture, audio and industrial sectors(including designer goods), but that’s another story.
