Summary

Summary: 
Being world’s leading manufacturer of modular floating elements for various application areas in tourism, leisure, industrial and military sectors, the Austrian company seeks local partners/dealers in Italy, Spain, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Belgium and the Netherlands in order to conclude distribution services agreements.

Description

Description: 

The Austrian SME was founded fifty years ago and has first patented modular floating cubes. The elements are available in various colours and in the dimensions 50x50 and 50x100 cm. The complete system is produced in Austria. A wide range of accessories offers multiple different configurations, which means that the system is flexible and can be expanded, changed, or converted into any possible shape. Thus, within its different application areas the elements can be used as:

- work platform
- bathing jetty
- boat dock
- leisure facility or floating stage
- also to be configured for fish farming or photovoltaic systems

The manufacturer offers floating modular system solutions for marinas, bathing platforms, hotel facilities, pools, working platforms, pontoon bridges, pipeline support, machine equipment support, aquaculture, modular ferries and event platforms.

Being already engaged in transnational cooperation, the Austrian company would like to expand its existing dealer network within Europe and therefore seeks to conclude distribution services agreements with suitable partners in Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Finland, Belgium, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The system is flexible and adaptive to the required sizes and complexity needs. The system is certified and tested for industrial use. The elements are made only from the best available material, a special high-density polyethylene (HDPE). The manufacturer’s production certificate confirms that this raw material is also produced strictly according to ISO 9001 standards. The material is UV stable and weatherproof, frost-proof, impact resistant, rotting-proof & food-safe, as well as salt water and acid resistant. The elements require little maintenance and are very easy to assemble. The manufacturer provides training, technical and marketing support for their partners.
