Gruppo Boero and Hempel have joined the International Council of Marine Industry association

Two marine paints and coatings specialists, Gruppo Boero and Hempel, have joined the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) as sustaining members.

The Yachting Division of Gruppo Boero has been a reference point for the Italian and international market for decades, offering a wide range of products for the painting, repair and maintenance of boats.

“Gruppo Boero has chosen to join ICOMIA because of its global scale and its competences,” says Boero’s Andrea Cavalleroni. “With its various committees on several different focuses within the yachting industry we find it fundamental to be part of this association; especially as Gruppo Boero, with the two brands Boero YachtCoatings and Veneziani Yachting, is one of the global market leaders within the yacht coatings industry.”

Hempel supplies coatings to the protective, marine, decorative, industrial, container and yacht industries. Across the globe their coatings protect structures and equipment from corrosion. They extend asset lifetimes, reduce maintenance costs and bring colour to homes and places of work.

ICOMIA is the international trade association representing the global marine industry since 1966. The group brings together marine industry associations from across the world in one global organisation and represents them at international level, presenting a strong and united voice when dealing with issues challenging the industry.
