Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from Sea-Fire Marine and AB Inflatables USA.
Adding an international distributor, Sea-Fire Marine said the National Petroleum Services Co. in Kuwait will offer Sea-Fire systems and related products as part of its specialized fire systems and firefighting/fire alarm services.
"Napesco will enable us to further expand our customer base in Kuwait and the surrounding markets," Sea-Fire Europe business development manager Richard Duckworth said in a statement. "Their experience and reputation are a valuable addition to our sales efforts."
Baltimore-based Sea-Fire offers automatic and manual/automatic fire suppression systems.
Napesco, established in 1993, provides a range of services in the oil and gas industries of the Middle East. It was the first Kuwaiti company to receive DNV and Lloyd’s approval as a service supplier for marine vessels for fire alarm/firefighting services.
It is also the only company that the U.S. Department of Transportation has approved for the testing and recertification of firefighting and compressed gas cylinders in Kuwait.
