Lalizas, the Greece-based safety equipment manufacturer, has announced the opening of a UK company, Lalizas UK.

The new venture is jointly owned and headed up by Charlie Mill, formerly of C-Front Trading and Ocean Safety. Mill has a wide breadth of experience within the marine safety sector.

Lalizas products will be available in a UK-based warehouse by the end of the year. The move shows how important the UK is to Lalizas and their global strategy. 

“I have been impressed with the wide range of safety and marine equipment that Lalizas manufactures,” says Mill. “Having a UK-based, sales team and warehouse and will enable us to offer better support to existing and new customers.”

The UK base will better support existing UK customers as well as develop new customers with quicker product availability and a UK sales team. The company will be supported in sales by Jack Sharland and Finley Mill.

Lalizas distributes to 129 countries and manufactures many of the safety products it offers. Its complete portfolio of products will be available in the UK, including Lalizas safety products Nuova Rade, Ocean Fenders, Max Power and Lofrans. The UK office will also distribute ACR Electronics and Comet products for the military, commercial and leisure marine markets.
