Sea-Fire Europe - Network News 003 - July 2012
Sea-Fire Europe Ltd.

Keeping you in the picture

Welcome to the third edition of
Network News

Through the hard work of everyone involved, Sea-Fire has continued to grow through these hard times and we are thankful that all our distributors have made it as well.

To strengthen our business prospects, we have taken on a line of Sea-Fire branded ventilation products, dampers and mist eliminators. The Sea-Fire product already interacts with this equipment through our shutdown gear, so it makes sense that we offer this as a complete package to our boat builder customers. There are further product details in the story below.
Since the last newsletter, there have been a couple of personnel changes at SFE as we look to further strengthen our team and improve our service to you. We are also fortunate to have signed-up three new distributors to our network, who I would like to introduce you to below.

Revised Prices

Due to the weakening of the Euro against the Dollar during the first six months of this year, we have had no choice but to issue a revised Euro price list for FM200 and Novec that has been valid since 1st June 2012.

Although any price increase is regrettable, this is the first time that we have raised our prices in 18 months.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions concerning this.
