SIKA®’S FIRST MARINE TRADE ROAD SHOW A BIG HIT
Sika® UK’s first marine trade roadshow has been a resounding success with plans already underway to run another event next year.
Together with its UK distributor, Marine Industrial LLP, Sika UK ran its first event aimed at key boat yards in the South of England. Technical representatives from both companies gave a series of talks and practical demonstrations to boat building teams from throughout the region visiting yards such as Oyster Yachts, Discovery Yachts, Berthon Boat Company and the RNLI.
Commenting, Sika® UK’s Marine Market Field Specialist, Gareth Ross said, “It was the first time we have done anything like this before so we weren’t sure what reaction we would get but everywhere we went, we were welcomed and keenly received. The groups of highly skilled craftsman that we spoke to were enthusiastic and asked lots of interesting and pertinent questions about the techniques and products that we demonstrated. Many were surprised at the extent of Sika's product range so we feel the time we spent with them was extremely worthwhile.”
Laurie Brebner from Marine Industrial LLP said, “We pride ourselves on offering technical backup across all our product ranges and Sika is a very important product to us and our customers who use it. The Sika Marine Roadshow provided a great opportunity to work in partnership with Sika and take our combined knowledge to Sika users, informing them of new products, discuss current application techniques and receive feedback from those ‘on the tools’. Our key aim was to make their jobs easier and more efficient using Sika products whilst reinforcing the reliability of such a tried and trusted brand.”
The next Sika Marine Roadshow is planned for spring 2017. For further information email email@example.com
