Chris Waterman joins Marine Fire Safety

Marine Fire Safety has appointed Chris Waterman as its technical sales manager.

Waterman will be responsible for heading-up the company’s new safety division within the commercial, offshore and windfarm industries. He will focus on developing the LSA (life- saving appliance) portfolio as well as establishing a liferaft hire programme. He will support customers safety, service and hire needs. This, says the firefighting and lifesaving equipment company, will ensure customers continue to benefit from the tailored approach Marine Fire Safety provides.

Waterman brings over 16 years of industry experience and technical knowledge to the role. He has previously held positions at Ocean Safety, during which time he set up its global liferaft and lifejacket
service network as well as developing the commercial marine business along the south coast, to include fishing vessels, charter boats and ferry operators.

“I’m very excited to be joining Marine Fire Safety at such a pivotal point in the company’s development,” says Waterman. “It is important to demonstrate to our customers that we are developing products and services, to better serve them, whilst remaining an honest, friendly and approachable business. We have the full support of the Lalizas UK team, and I look forward to seeing how this new partnership grows.”

This appointment is the next phase of Marine Fire Safety’s business growth strategy, following its recent collaboration with Lalizas UK, and will help it to expand its existing product and service portfolio to offer liferaft and lifejacket supply and hire.
