Ernie Ellis, founder and CEO of US-based fire suppression specialist Sea-Fire, launched a new company at METS last week.
GlobalTec is a global distributor of technical products across five product lines: Passerelles, Pumps, Generators, Lights and Adhesives & Sealants. Other ranges of equipment are also said to be in the pipeline.
“In recent years it has become clear that a gap has developed for a company to supply a whole range of innovative technical products under one brand through an established and trusted network,” says Ellis.
“In the current climate nobody wants to invest in new infrastructure so our model uses our renowned existing global sales and service network, removing the need for additional capital outlay.”
The Sea-Fire network of suppliers and technicians is already globally established in major boatbuilding hubs, giving architects, designers and builders immediate access to GlobalTec branded products.
“Traditionally, high-value marine equipment is procured separately from different manufacturers all over the world,” adds technical director Richard Duckworth. “This removes choice, while adding cost and time to any build schedule. But, if you could source all the best equipment from one place, we believe that would be a huge bonus for the builders.”
Products within the GlobalTec portfolio include NauTec passerelles, bathing ladders and swim platforms, FlowTec pumps, GenTec marine generators, LighTec LEDs and FixTech adhesives and sealants.
Fixtech is honoured to have the opportunity to collaborate with Global Tec Solutions, our new and exclusive American distributor. After attending IBEX in Kentucky in a joint venture with Global Tec Solutions we are abuzz with excitement at what the future holds in store for our new partnership. Based in Baltimore Global Tech Solutions are positioned well to service both North and South America in addition they also have representation in the Middle East and South Africa. With a wealth of industry experience and knowledge, we know that our new partner will continue the tradition of providing the world-class support and service that our customers have come to expect.
