SD Marine Services showcases its expertise at the Miami Seatrade Cruise event

The SD marine team will exhibit its full range of marine interior design and building services while mixing with fellow cruise industry leaders at the Miami-based exhibition

SD Marine team is to showcase its expertise on stand 4025 alongside fellow industry leaders at the Seatrade Cruise Global conference in Miami this April.

In 2010, SD Team created a specific team to take its experience and knowledge of cosmetic and hard surface repairs to the marine sector.

Its specialist SD Marine Services division has experienced continued growth and will now travel 4,000 miles to platform its services at the internationally renowned cruise conference from April 26th to 28th.

The marine team will showcase its complete turnkey service, which includes electrical, hard surface repair, French polishing, upholstery, as well as painting and decorating for both refurbished and new build ships.

Nick Jones, Director at SD Sealants, said: “This is such a great opportunity for SD Marine and we are really looking forward to having the team attend the Seatrade Cruise Global event in April 2022.

“As the cruise and marine industries start to pick up after what has been a really challenging couple of years, we are looking forward to showcasing a wide range of services that can be of help to the sector at a time when it has arguably never needed supporting more.”

SD Marine is part of the SD Team company, which recently announced another record-breaking year. Its turnover increased by 47% in 2021 compared with 2020, and SD Team has grown to be one of the largest general cosmetic repair specialists in the UK, with seven offices across England, Scotland and Wales.

Its Marine arm is now continuing its ambitious growth plans by promoting its services further afield, including in Miami, where Nick will also be joined by Marine Director Gareth Preston and fellow specialists Val Corneby, Paul Thomas, Steve Shaw and Kim Sealey.

Gareth Preston said: “We are all looking forward to using this platform as a means to showcase the talents and services of the SD Marine team and strengthen our relationships with like-minded industry leaders at the same time.

“Our marine experts are really looking forward to building further on the opportunities that arose from our presence at last year’s Cruise Ship Interiors Expo, also held in Miami, and to networking with even more businesses and key people operating within the industry on an international scale.”

“Attending the Seatrade Cruise Exhibition in Miami is really going to give us a chance to show the world what we have done in 2021, and how we will continue to develop as a marine sealant specialist in 2022,” Gareth added.

“This time around we have lots of new products to show the market and we certainly have no plans to stop there. We’re very lucky at SD to have had a great year in business, and this feels like the perfect way to celebrate and get ready for even more new and exciting challenges ahead.”
