Marintec China 2009, the definitive Asian marine trade show, has provided new strategic contacts for leading marine distress signals company Chemring Marine.

Chemring Marine sales director Justine Heeley attended the show along with Ramli Yusoff, the division manager of Pains Wessex distributor WH Brennan of Singapore and Zou Min, sales manager of WH Brennan, Shanghai, to meet delegates and talk about Pains Wessex products and new business opportunities.

“It has been a busy show for Pains Wessex and we have established promising new contacts both from the Chinese market and international visitors,” says Heeley. An extensive range of Pains Wessex products were included on WH Brennan’s stand at the show in Shanghai in December.

Marintec’s 30th anniversary show attracted more than 1,200 exhibitors and almost 43,000 visitors from around the world, up 20% on the last show in 2007. China’s shipbuilding industry is now the largest in the world and provides plenty of opportunities for Pains Wessex to increase business.

Pains Wessex is owned by Chemring Marine Ltd., based in Fareham, UK, which is part of the Chemring Group PLC. The company is the world’s leading supplier of SOLAS, MED and USCG-approved marine distress signals to the commercial and leisure marine markets.

Our products are trusted by commercial and leisure marine markets for their reliability and have been saving lives for more than a century.
