Survitec Group adds manufacturer’s reps

The Survitec Group appointed two new manufacturer’s representatives for the Crewsaver life raft and life jacket ranges.

The Survitec Group appointed two new manufacturer’s representatives in the United States for the Crewsaver life raft and life jacket ranges.

Mac-Hugh & Associates will represent Crewsaver in the Gulf states of Louisiana and Texas; Coast Marine Marketing will represent the product ranges on the West Coast.

Based in Harahan, La., Mac-Hugh has been representing marine equipment manufacturers since 1989. Coast Marine Marketing is headed by Steve Burdett, who has more than 30 years of experience in the marketing and technical sales of safety products.

“With the addition of these two very experienced representatives, the expansion of the Crewsaver recreational life raft and life jacket ranges in the U.S. market is proceeding on pace,” Survitec Group U.S. leisure marine sales manager Andrew Hiller said in a statement.

Crewsaver said its recreational life rafts have three models — for coastal, under 24-hour ocean and over 24-hour ocean use. All are available in sizes to accommodate four to 12 people. The 24-hour models are Lloyd’s Class ISO-approved. A 12-year fabric and seam warranty and an extended service period of three years reduce ongoing maintenance costs.

Coast Guard approval is expected this month for the new Crewsaver life jacket range specially designed for use in the United States.
