The future looks bright for Chemring Marine’s new Argentinean distributor, IDP.

IDP SA is working tirelessly to obtain product approval in Argentina for the world’s leading marine distress signal company and its Comet brand.

IDP’s Gustavo Bidone, says, “Our company is well known as a serious and reliable partner for commercialisation and servicing of lifesaving appliances in the south cone of America. We only deal with top-quality products and brands.”

IDP is currently finishing the process of obtaining national product approvals for the SOLAS range of Comet products, including parachute rockets, handflares, smoke signals, light and smoke signals and linethrowers.

The Buenos Aires-based company is developing a national sales network to maximise product distribution channels.

The appointment of IDP means that Comet products are now distributed throughout Latin America’s main ports.

Chemring Marine is the world’s leading supplier of SOLAS, MED and USCG-approved marine distress signals to commercial and leisure marine markets through its Comet and Pains Wessex brands.

Available through over 200 distributors in more than 80 countries, Chemring Marine’s comprehensive range of products has been helping to save lives for more than 100 years and is specified by the world’s navies, merchant fleets, fishing vessels, rescue services, airlines and leisure craft. The company is based in Fareham, UK, and is part of the Chemring Group.

Chemring Marine is at the forefront of campaigning for improved global marine safety regulations, including introducing standardised rules on replacing dated safety products.
