Britain’s largest independent marine safety equipment supplier, Ocean Safety, has received a prominent award from Kannad Marine for the Most Innovative Distributor of the Year 2011. The Award was introduced at the Kannad Marine distributor conference during METS. Ocean Safety was one of only three distributors to be awarded.
Ross Wilkinson of Kannad Marine, said “It was with great pleasure that we presented an award to Ocean Safety in recognition of their outstanding performance in promoting the Kannad Marine range of products, in particularly the Safelink R10 Survival Recovery System (SRS), and driving sales in what has been a challenging year for everyone in the industry.”
Mark Hart of Ocean Safety said, “Naturally we are very pleased with our recognition from Kannad Marine for the great partnership that we have developed with them. The key to our success is the innovative R10 – a great product at the right market price. Developing ‘R10-Ready’ product lines (the R10 can be fitted to Ocean Safety’s life-jackets, the new MK5 Jonbuoy and liferafts) has boosted the market acceptance and resulted in this well deserved award for our team. This is our second award from Kannad Marine at METS – we won the New Distributor of the Year Award last year.”
The SafeLink R10 SRS also received a Special Mention at the DAME Awards at METS.
