Vinyl upholstery fabric manufacturer Morbern has been awarded the IMO MED Wheel Mark certification for its wide range of marine vinyl fabrics.

The wheel mark accreditation will allow Morbern to add to its exiting partnerships with major boatbuilders and also be specified for large vessels and passenger ships.

Carine Equeter, European sales manager for Morbern, says: “We are delighted that this additional quality standard achievement will open new doors for Morbern and its distribution network in Europe. Our IMO MED Wheel Mark approval underlines the quality of our vinyl products, developed to withstand the toughest marine environments.”

Morbern products are produced in Canada and distributed in Europe via a central warehouse in Amsterdam.
