MARINE ELECTRONIC SERVICES OPENS A NEW, CHICHESTER OFFICE
16 October 2007
Marine Electronic Services Ltd has opened a new sales, service and installation facility at Chichester Marina. The new operation will look after retail, service and installation for the local berth holders as well as OEM fit-outs for the major brands distributed by the new Opal Marine business – Rodman, Legend and Azimut.
Heading up the new operation is Andy Banting, who was previously employed by B A Peters, so there will be good continuity for existing customers. Sales and service agreements are in place for all the leading marine electronic manufacturers including Garmin, Raymarine, Furuno, Digital Yacht, Standard Horizon and Icom. These agreements also cover warranty service where appropriate.
“With over 1200 berths, Chichester is a prime retail environment for us as well as an important source for new boats that are distributed through the recently formed Opal Marine Ltd. We look forward to bringing our range of products and value added services into this locality,” commented Nick Heyes, Managing Director of Marine Electronic Services Ltd. “Andy Banting comes with a wealth of knowledge and over 15 years experience with marine electronics – we are delighted to have him and his team on board”. Marine Electronic Services Ltd is one of Europe’s largest specialist marine electronic resellers and installers, with offices in Bristol, Chichester, Poole and London. They currently employ around 30 people, with annual revenues of approximately £10 million per annum.
