One family, one material, one passion
In 1973, Emile Pradelle created CNP (Constructions Nautiques du Pouliguen).
In 1979, after several expansions, Chantiers Navals de la Presqu’île was formed in Le Croisic. Grouping several activities around emerging composite material techniques, CNP became a recognized specialist in working with this new material. Manufacturing and shipbuilding then worked alongside one another at this new production site.
In 1988, two separate entities emerged:
- To meet a growing demand for larger vessels, related to the push for larger shipping boats, Chantier Naval Croisicais was created. The shipyard soon became a recognized specialist in professional shipbuilding using composites.
- Meanwhile, Chantiers Navals de la Presqu’île maintained its industrial activity and also experienced major growth.
Backed by significant human and technical resources, the company manufactured composite parts using multiple processes (RTM, contact, infusion, filament winding, etc.). It created products for treating waste water, recovering rainwater, fish farming, water sports, bodywork, and recreation. In 2009, the company changed its name to Polyway, and today it is known as a leader in its field.
