Marine rep signs two new clients

Arid Bilge Systems and Pier Genius hired the Martin Flory Group to handle their North American public relations.

Arid Bilge Systems provides products that automatically maintain "a clean, bone-dry bilge." The company's automatic vacuum bilge drying systems use multiple pickups placed in bilge compartments to remove moisture. It also offers components to ensure safe overboard discharge.

Pier Genius manufactures floating dock steel frames that incorporate "state-of-the-art anti-sway technology." The company also offers a line of dock accessories and stationary piers for residential and commercial applications.

"Both Arid Bilge and Pier Genius bring something new to the marine industry," Martin Flory Group president Laura Martin said in a statement. "These companies manufacture products that don't stop at average results, but take common ideas, like dry bilges and stable piers, to the next level."
