An American based marine stabilisation expert is opening its first European office in a bid to cater for increased growth in the region and give customers quicker service.

The new service team in Lavanga, Italy, will be able to more quickly assist customers in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, cutting shipping time and costs. Previously, all parts were shipped as needed from the Mohnton, Pennsylvania factory.

“The European market has been vital to Seakeeper’s success,” said Andrew Semprevivo, President & CEO, Seakeeper.

“The new office is going to allow our team to provide an even higher level of support to the region and continue the trajectory of growth we have experienced in the past five years.”

Increased sales

Seakeeper’s European sales have increased an average of 30% annually over the past three years, with an anticipated 40% growth for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.

Current openings in the Italian office include positions for a field service technician and demo boat captain, with more opportunities planned for the near future.

Most recently, Paolo Berardi joined the team as southern european sales manager. Mr Berardi has vast experience in marine industry sales, most recently serving as a sales engineer for Promat SpA.

Founded in 2003 by a successful entrepreneur and a naval architect, Seakeeper’s innovative technology claims to change the boating experience by eliminating up to 95% of boat roll.

The company has more than 160 employees globally, based in the US, UK, Italy, Germany and Singapore.
