Following a long tradition of producing innovative, market leading, products Scanstrut are once again adding to their already extensive range. The exciting new range of instrument pods takes a fresh look at the challenge of installing chartplotters or radar displays, onto power or sailboats.
A win at MAATS in the Safety Category for the new Fast Find PLB is the crowning glory of a busy seven months for McMurdo. The company so far this year appears to be one of the lucky marine businesses bucking the trend of recession that so many other equipment companies have suffered in recent months. McMurdo has seen a very significant growth in sales in the first half of 2009, and the manufacturing output has already exceeded the total for 2008. Jeremy Harrison, General Manager of McMurdo explains “We have experienced continual growth since the acquisition of McMurdo by Signature Industries Ltd back in April 2007. A lot of this has to be attributed to the investment that we have put into developing affordable market leading products for the world’s outdoor safety markets, plus the general growth in safety awareness in our everyday lives”. He adds “We expect this growth continuing in the foreseeable future”.
