The 2012 Club Marine Australian Marine Export & Superyacht Industry Awards, organized by the Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) were announced last night at the AIMEX and Club Marine annual networking function in Sydney’s Darling Harbor.
Based in Queensland, M-Tech (Marine Technologies), part of the Bellingham Marine Group, were awarded “Best Marine Industry Export Performance (Small)’.
M-Tech specialize in the manufacture of innovative marine and leisure utility equipment and accessories, ranging from Marina Utility Service Pedestals, Emergency Service Equipment, Sanitation Pump out Equipment to Instant Response Fire Carts. Their export market is growing, and due to the vast stocks that are held in their Queensland facility, spare parts can be exported within 24 hours, anywhere in the world.
Currently manufacturing to Asia and the Middle East, M-Tech have recently appointed a European Distributor and are now ideally placed and structured to service the European market. 2011/2012 secured M-Tech with the three largest marina projects in the Middle East; Najmat Marina (Abu Dhabi), Marasay Marina (Abu Dhabi) and The Wave Marina (Oman).
As the marine industry has been struggling through an economically tough period, M-Tech’s key point of difference was their forceful approach in successfully securing these export opportunities. The appointment of Darren Wilkinson in 2011 as General Manager, provided M-Tech with a wealth of experience and advantageous relationships.
Currently exporting to over 26 different countries, M-Tech are well on the way to expanding their global coverage even further. And with Australian manufacturing facing tough trading conditions, M-Tech continues to excel in the International marketplace.
