Dura Composites Continues its Worldwide Expansion with New French Marine Distributor, Metalu
Dura Composites is continuing its expansion into Europe with the appointment of a new exclusive French marine product distributor, Metalu. With over 40 years of technical and maritime experience, Metalu are experts in the design, manufacture and installation of marine systems, including fixed and floating pontoons, marinas, gangways and footbridges.
Metalu joins Dura Composites’ established network of exclusive distribution partners in Europe and the Middle East and will be focussed on developing new markets in France for Dura’s popular Dura Grating GRP grating and Ultra Deck composite timber decking products.
The French marine market (with over 800,000 registered boat parks), is one of the biggest and busiest in Europe and is known for its ability to move with the times. With a reputation for innovation, Dura Composites is ideally placed to work with Metalu to provide a wide range of cost effective and low maintenance composite alternatives to traditional materials which will stand the test of time in challenging marine environments.
Commenting on the new agreement, Dura Composites’ Managing Director Stuart Burns said: “We are delighted to welcome Metalu on board as our exclusive French marine product distributor. They are an industry expert with a strong reputation and an established network of contacts and we are extremely confident that with Metalu representing us, France will prove to be a fertile market for growth for Dura Composites.”
Gilles Pelle, Metalu’s President added; “The quality and range of Dura Composites’ products are second to none and we are sure they will prove popular with our extensive network of customers. Our specialised engineering department is equipped with the latest design and calculation software, enabling us to design any type of dock system for any site configuration. What attracted us about Dura Composites products was their versatility and durability in a wide range of applications, as well as their attractive appearance. We look forward to driving new business with Dura Composites in the coming year”.
