Drew Marine Signal and Safety gets a new name
Marine distress signal company Drew Marine Signal and Safety is being renamed following the acquisition of the technical side of the business by the Wilhelmsen Group.
WesCom Signal and Rescue, as the company will now be known, will continue to manufacture the leading commercial and leisure marine pyrotechnic brands, Pains Wessex, Comet, Oroquieta and Aurora.
“WesCom Signal and Rescue’s business operations will continue unchanged, manufacturing and marketing its brands exactly as before,” said Claire Newland, vice president, global business development and general manager UK, WesCom Signal and Rescue.
“All products, personnel and distributors will also remain the same. The company is committed to continuing its excellent customer service and technical support.”
Formerly Chemring Marine, Drew Marine acquired the marine pyrotechnics business from Chemring Group in 2012 and has operated under the company name Drew Marine Signal and Safety since.
WesCom Signal and Rescue marine distress signal products are trusted for their reliability and consistent superiority by rescue services, navies, merchant ships and fishing fleets throughout the world.
Its products are approved globally and are manufactured in compliance with the latest Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS) and Marine Equipment Directive (MED) requirements.
