Trend Marine Products expands operations

Superyacht glazing specialist Trend Marine Products, a member of the Taylor Made Group, increased its investment to support superyacht business growth.

During the last 18 months, Trend Marine Products has invested $900,000 in state-of-the-art production facilities at its integrated site in the east of England. The investment is a result of its success in winning superyacht glazing contracts and the positive effect of its focused business development strategy in the superyacht sector.

Experiencing 50 percent year-on-year growth since 2009 in the multimillion-dollar superyacht sector, Trend Marine has added a dedicated facility producing high-specification insulated glazing units. Using its in-house capability to horizontally sag-bend glass and toughen it through chemical, rather than thermal, processes, along with the addition of more high-quality grinding and polishing machinery, Trend Marine said it can now deliver glass formed to the most demanding specifications of the superyacht market.

“Trend Marine Products is fully committed to increasing our presence in the superyacht sector,” managing director Frank Buckley said. “We have focused our business development activities on this very demanding market with a high level of success. Our engineering team is currently designing new glazing products and solutions that are being sought by superyacht owners, designers and yards. Superyacht glass supply contracts with some of the most prestigious yards are becoming an increasingly important element of our business mix.”
