Following the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) earlier this year, VEEM Ltd. has now agreed territories and principle responsibilities with the Italian marine equipment distributor SAIM Group. SAIM Group will be responsible for increasing awareness of the Australian engineering firm’s latest developments in gyro stabilization technology, whilst driving sales of the latest VEEM Gyro products across Central Europe.

Both VEEM and SAIM Group have established enviable reputations within their respective fields for the development and distribution of high quality marine equipment. The signing of the new agreement means both parties can look forward to expanding VEEM Gyro’s market presence, as Paul Steinmann, product manager for VEEM Gyro, explained, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with one of the marine industry’s most respected players and to add SAIM to the expanding roster of global sales agents. Those working specifically with our range of gyros now also includes CJR Propulsion in the U.K. and Ship Motion Group in the Netherlands.”

Marco Dona of SAIM Group commented, “By leveraging the respective strengths of both organizations, VEEM and SAIM Group are able to boast a tremendous offering. VEEM Gyros are a genuine step change in performance and VEEM’s investment in the latest design and production technology means it is an exciting organization to work with. It was this proposition which first attracted us to work with VEEM – to expand both companies’ global reach and position its gyros as the only choice for superyacht and small ship stabilization.”

SAIM Group’s enthusiasm for becoming a part of the VEEM family further demonstrates the quality and unique benefits of VEEM’s gyro products. SAIM Group has been an important distributor to the marine industry for two decades, following the creation of SAIM Marine in 1993. Since then the company has been equipping applications ranging from recreational marine to commercial vessels and is the supplier of choice for many of the most prestigious Italian shipyards. SAIM Group distributes high quality equipment to over 3,000 customers along the southern coast of Europe, with operations based in Buccinasco (Milan), Fiumicino (Rome), Viareggio and Bologna in Italy and Mandelieu in France, which is run by its sister company, SAIM France Sarl.

Stephen Vincent, global sales manager for VEEM added, “Our new range of gyro stabilization products has been designed to deliver peak performance through the use of precision engineering and pioneering technology and it’s that drive and commitment to developing exciting new products that helps attract the top tier of sales distributors. With the arrival of SAIM, we continue to be able to work with the very best in the business. SAIM’s experience in providing quality equipment to the marine industry is a terrific asset and we are delighted they will now be able to offer VEEM Gyros to all their existing clients.”
