Dedicated Facility Producing High Specification IGU’s at Trend Marine
September 9, 2011
World leading superyacht glazing specialist Trend Marine increases investment to support superyacht business growth
During the past 18 months £570k has been invested by Trend Marine Products in state of the art production facilities at their integrated site in the east of England. This is a direct result of their success in winning superyacht glazing contracts, and the positive impact of their focused business development strategy in the superyacht sector.
Experiencing 50% year-on-year growth since 2009 in the multi-million pound superyacht sector, Trend Marine have now added a dedicated facility producing high specification insulated glazing units (IGUs). Incorporating the recently installed Sag Bent Chemically Toughened Glass production plant, the addition of more high quality grinding and polishing machinery now allows Trend Marine’s factories to deliver to the most demanding specifications.
“Trend Marine Products are fully committed to increasing our presence in the superyacht sector”, commented Frank Buckley, Trend Marine’s Managing Director. “We have focused our business development activities on this very demanding market, with a high level of success. Our Engineering Team are currently designing new glazing products and solutions that are being sought by superyacht owners, designers and yards. Superyacht glass supply contracts with some of the most prestigious yards are becoming an increasingly important element of our business mix”, he continued.
Trend Marine have also had their Fire Safety Glass successfully approved to the demanding A60 rating by the International Maritime Organisation. Designed for Zone 1 applications, this regularly specified solution has now been added to the Trend Marine superyacht portfolio. Required on many super and megayacht projects, the investment in fire rated glass again clearly displays the Company’s commitment to the sector.
