New Zealand-based foul-release coatings manufacturer Propspeed announced a new U.S. facility and business unit.
Propspeed USA will be located in Orlando, Fla., giving the manufacturer quicker access to U.S. OEMs, builders and retailers.
“It was an absolutely necessary strategic decision to establish a U.S. presence,” vice president of sales and operations Marcus Hamilton said in a statement. “Our focus is simple — to provide segment-leading products, operational excellence, passionate people and superior technical and training support.”
In addition to warehousing its products, the Orlando location will house the Propspeed Business Resource Center, which will offer sales and technical training for boatyard professionals, installers and marine businesses throughout North America, according to Propspeed.
