Lalizas, the Greek based safety equipment manufacturer, has announced the opening of a UK company, Lalizas UK, jointly owned and headed up by Charlie Mill.
Charlie Mill, formerly of C-Front Trading and Ocean Safety has a wide breadth of experience within the marine safety sector and is looking forward to heading up this new venture.
The formation of the new Lalizas UK office means that the extensive range of Lalizas products will be available in a UK based Warehouse by the end of the year. This move shows how important the UK is to Lalizas and their global strategy.
The UK base will better support existing UK customers as well as develop new customers with quicker product availability and a UK sales team. The company will be supported in sales by Jack Sharland and Finley Mill.
Mr Lalizas, who founded the company in 1982, was awarded a lifetime achievement award in 2018 at the Seawork exhibition for his outstanding work. The company distributes to 129 countries worldwide and manufactures many of the safety products it offers. The complete portfolio of products offered by Lalizas will be available in the UK, including the Lalizas safety products, Nuova Rade, Ocean Fenders, Max Power and Lofrans.
In addition to the Lalizas brands, the UK office will be distributing ACR Electronics and Comet products for the military, commercial and leisure marine markets, meaning they can offer customers a complete package for all their safety requirements.
