Propspeed Expands Operations Into the Pacific Northwest
“We are dedicated to being more than just the suppliers of exceptional products, but partners with our boat yard and installation customers to help their businesses thrive."
Auckland, New Zealand – Propspeed, leading innovator of underwater foul-release coatings, announced today it has expanded its United States operations into the Pacific Northwest.
Supported by the recently established business unit Propspeed USA, new American warehouse facility and the online Business Resource Center, regional sales manager and technical support for the West Coast, Rusty Morgan will be responsible for delivering exceptional service for customers throughout the region. With a focus on offering reliable support and a personal relationship to drive growth with boat yards, marine businesses and customers in the commercial sector, Morgan has relocated to Bellingham, Washington to run the Pacific Northwest operation for Propspeed USA.
“In addition to our award-winning line of foul-release coatings, the success of Propspeed is driven by our passion for the marine industry, which is demonstrated by the entire team every day,” said Morgan. “We are dedicated to being more than just the suppliers of exceptional products, but partners with our boat yard and installation customers to help their businesses thrive. The Pacific Northwest is a boater’s paradise for a reason. It has a rich maritime history that has fostered a thriving community of both commercial and recreational mariners, an unparalleled setting and a diverse marine ecosystem that demands eco-friendly coatings solutions to maintain the robust beauty that the region was built on. I think Propspeed’s products fold in uniquely well to this environment.”
“Our corporate culture aims to achieve excellence through passionate people in all aspects of our business, from product development to service,” said Marcus Hamilton, vice president of sales and operations – Americas, Propspeed. “Rusty has demonstrated time and again that he will go above and beyond for his customers, and his technical background and experience is highly valued by all that he works with. We are excited about Rusty’s move and are confident that the Pacific Northwest marine industry will be too.”
Propspeed’s ultra-slick topcoat is specially formulated to prevent marine growth from bonding to metal surfaces below the waterline. It is proven to increase boat efficiency, reduce drag, save fuel and maintenance costs. It features an exceptionally strong chemical and mechanical bond between the metal substrate, the Etching Primer and the Clear Coat – ensuring that the Propspeed coating actually sticks to running gear, and any other underwater metals, and performs season after season.
