Marine Professionals celebrates 20th anniversary

Marine Professionals Inc. said it is marking its 20th year in business.

Marine Professionals Inc. said it is marking its 20th year in business, starting a year-long commemoration with a new celebratory logo and a secondary complementary visual.

The marine maintenance and management, electronics/AV and networking, and emergency services firm said its anniversary logo symbolizes its success during the past 20 years, its commitment to long-standing clients and its overall philosophy of customer loyalty and care. A secondary logo rounds out new visual identifiers with a universally recognizable compass rose.

Marine Professionals said it has expanded its ongoing yacht maintenance and management business to chart the deeper waters of marine electronics, AV and networking, and emergency crisis expertise — providing full-scale marine management services at its flagship location at Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale.

Marine Professionals said it also recently expanded to a new location in Naples, Fla., offering its marine electronics specialty to southwest Florida from Marco Island to Sarasota. The company recently exhibited at the marine electronics show in Naples.

“Growing up in and on the water in the Northeast and moving to Florida at the age of 21, I am fortunate to look back on the last 20-plus years with great pride and sense of achievement, having started MPI at the young age of 23 with just one client, to now being one of the premier marine service companies in Florida,” Marc Curreri said in a statement.

“I look ahead to the next 20 years, seeing a very bright and prosperous horizon that will only continue to grow and expand, alongside our clients.”
