BELLINGHAM LAUNCHES SERVICES IN EUROPE
September 10, 2003
Bellingham Marine Europe Ltd (BME), a subsidiary of Bellingham Marine Industries (BMI), has recently been incorporated in the UK to give BMI a presence in Europe. The purpose of this new company is to offer the hugely successful Unistack® dry storage systems and the proven Unifloat® concrete dock systems and wave attenuators, as well as the experience of Bellingham’s marina professionals, to the European marketplace.
“BMI, the world’s largest builder of marina berthing systems, has offices and operating divisions in Australia, New Zealand, Japan and throughout North America,” said Phil Greenman, executive vice president. “Our entry into the European market has been part of our business plan for some time, and we believe now is the right time to take this next critical step. Europe is a large and diverse market to which we will bring our marina planning and building expertise and experience, as well as some new solutions to old problems.
As an example, the Unistack dry storage berthing system, so popular in other parts of the world, is relatively unknown in Europe.” Bellingham Marine Europe Ltd is headed by Matthew Hardy, a British marina professional who has many years of experience in the industry. The company will offer European clients a personalized approach to provide tailored solutions that best suit individual needs. “We are keen to promote the Unistack dry stack storage system, as we see a huge need in many areas of Europe,” said Hardy.
“Dry storage is ideal for the Mediterranean and offers a simple, cost-effective solution to greatly expand berthing availability at almost any site.”
Bellingham Marine designs, manufactures and installs floating dock systems and dry storage buildings for marinas and boat facilities worldwide.
