Reflex Marine Launches Service Center

Press Release
Monday, October 15, 2012

Reflex Marine, producer of the industry-leading Frog and Toro personnel carriers and expert in marine personnel transfer, continues to expand its global network of Accredited Service Centres (ASCs) with the launch of its latest Center in Canada.

Nord Marine Services Ltd, a supplier of marine safety equipment, has been appointed to operate the new Accredited Service Center in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland.  As a result Canadian operators will be able to access local maintenance, training and demonstration services, for the Frog and Toro transfer units. It will also enable Reflex Marine to ensure a uniformly high standard of maintenance and safety for its products in the region.

The Newfoundland operation is the latest to be established by Reflex Marine, as part of an ongoing program to set up Accredited Services Centers in many of the world’s key oil and gas regions. Centers have already been set up in Norway, Dubai, Singapore and Houston, with plans to extend to Brazil and the Caspian in the near future.

Reflex Marine’s business manager for North America Grant Wintle said: “Canada is an important region for Reflex Marine as clients continue to set high standards in personnel transfer offshore and look for improvements in their operations.  Due to seasonal fog, Canadian operators have long treated helicopter and marine with equal priority as both play a key role in maintaining offshore transfer capabilities. The Frog can be used in more extreme situations and with challenging visibility, sea conditions and low temperatures all present off the East Coast of Canada, maintaining the integrity of units is crucial.”

Mr Wintle added: “It is important that we have a competent and knowledgeable partner in the region to make sure these units are serviced to our high standards. Nord Marine has demonstrated that they have the capability and personnel to ensure confidence in the integrity of our products.”

Nord  Marine Services President Max Ash said: “Reflex Marine is an excellent company to represent with quality products for personnel transfer, and goes the extra mile for customer service support coupled with an excellent support system for the Accredited Service Centers. We look forward to a long business relationship with Reflex Marine Limited and their continuing support to provide our Customers with quality products and services in our territory."
