Global distributors of the world’s leading marine distress signal brand have attended a special dinner at a top trade show.

Distributors of Pains Wessex marine distress signals from right around the world were invited to the gourmet meal, which took place in conjunction with METS, the Marine Equipment Trade Show, in Amsterdam.

The dinner was hosted and attended by key staff from manufacturer Drew Marine Signal and Safety.

Global Key Account and Strategic Projects Manager, Holger Muegge, says, "METS is an ideal networking event and it was rewarding to see many of our Pains Wessex distributors at the meal and at the show.

"One of the reasons why Pains Wessex is the world’s leading brand of marine distress signals is that we have a dedicated and knowledgeable network of more than 200 distributors right around the world and this was a small way of thanking them for their professionalism and hard work."
