AB Marine Group, manufacturer of AB inflatables, earned certification from the Business Alliance for Secure Commerce.

BASC is a business-customs partnership created to promote safe international trade in cooperation with governments and international organizations. Its mission is to promote world trade by establishing and administrating global supply chain security standards and procedures in partnership with business, governments, customs, law enforcement agencies and international business organizations.

BASC has more than 2,500 companies as members and operates in 13 countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

Ivor Heyer, president of AB Marine Group, said this achievement highlights the company's commitment to the security of its employees, clients and suppliers.

"The BASC certificate is a strong endorsement of our people and our procedures," he said in a statement.

The certification was especially welcome since last year the company moved from Venezuela to Barranquilla, Colombia

"We have a facility that is three times the size of our old one," Heyer said. "We want to double production in three years."
