Bellingham Marine and C.M. Ferrer S.A. entered into an exclusive licensing agreement for the countries of Spain, France, Portugal and Italy.

The agreement provides C.M. Ferrer with a license to manufacture and sell Bellingham’s patented marina systems, including its Unifloat concrete floating dock system and its Unideck aluminum pontoon system.

“We're thrilled to unite Bellingham Marine's unparalleled experience in the marina construction industry with C.M. Ferrer’s expertise in the local market,” Bellingham Marine president Everett Babbitt said in a statement.

C.M. Ferrer is part of a family group of businesses that have a manufacturing cluster in Spain’s Girona province. The company has a 55-year history in precision engineering and the fabrication of metal structures.

For the last several years, C.M. Ferrer has supported Bellingham’s European manufacturing operations by supplying the company’s metalwork for its Unifloat system. C.M. Ferrer’s group also owns Bellingham Marine’s existing facilities in Girona.

C.M. Ferrer will retain the casting facilities and office space for its new marina division.

Bellingham European operations general manager Chris Lamont and the division’s lead staff members were retained by C.M. Ferrer.
