SeaWORK Exhibition a Great Success for R&M

seawork internationalR&M’s recent exhibition at the 2014 SeaWork Exhibition  – Commercial Marine Exhibition & Forum, was a great success, with our stand attracting many visitors over the course of the 3 day show.

R&M’s Marine Division took the opportunity to show case the large range of marine related electrical products and cable we are able to supply.

Visitors to R&M’s SeaWork Exhibition Stand were given (and many of them took!) the opportunity to quiz our R&M cable expert Andy Baggott on their technical requirements.  Andy was overheard seawork exhibitioncommenting they were some of the most challenging questions he has received, but was able to raise to the occasion and answer all of them on the day!  Andy was also available to offer guidance and technical information on the wide range of marine cable R&M are able to offer.

Nick Jenkin & Simon Dibden (part of R&M’s marine sales team) manned the stand throughout the show, and were able to highlight the additional bespoke services the R&M Marine Division are able to offer marine customers – including bespoke customer supply arrangements, a 24/7 delivery service, individualised electronic catalogues and a highly experienced and motivated marine team with a “can do” attitude!

“The SeaWork Exhibition was a great experience and the amount of interest our stand received was outstanding.  It was great to be able to show case all the products and services we are able to offer to such a wide range of customers from the marine industry.  Marine based customers have a specific set of requirements because of the environment they work in, so it was also a good opportunity to listen to them so we can improve on the excellent service we already offer!”  Nick Jenkin (Marine Sales Manager).
