Fastmount, the New Zealand-based marine panel mounting systems manufacturer, has appointed I-Sea as its exclusive distributor in Brazil.

Based in Sao Paulo, I-Sea is a new supplier that services the marine and architectural sectors. Company founder Fabio Guidon has more than 30 years of experience in the marine market, having been a buying agent for Brazilian boatbuilders, as well as a distributor for marine and hardware companies in Brazil.

Guidonwill continue to supply existing Fastmount customers in this market as well as new in both the marine and architectural sectors.

“We have been selling into Brazil now for over 10 years, but increasingly it has become apparent that we need a local distributor with a thorough understanding of the local market,” says Fastmount MD Gregg Kelly. “This partnership will better service our existing customers, speeding up supply as well as providing on the ground technical support which is essential to our success.”

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Fastmount designs and manufactures removable panel mounting systems to custom yards, outfitter companies, production yards and commercial shipyards in more than 50 countries. The company has 28 distributors covering 49 countries.
