Ocean Safety, a UK supplier of marine safety equipment worldwide, has named Jesús López as its new sales representative for Spain.

López will broaden the distribution of the company’s product range in mainland Spain and its territories. This includes Ocean Safety’s own manufactured products – such as liferafts, lifejackets and man overboard recovery systems – as well as third-party brands such as the US-built range of ACR emergency beacons.

As well as supporting Ocean Safety’s existing Spanish distributor network, López will also develop and support new business.

“I am really looking forward to taking on this role at Ocean Safety,” says López. “Our aim is to consolidate the sales in Spain expanding the actual network and target new customers such as shipyards and ship owners.”

López has 20 years’ experience in the marine safety sector, having previously worked as sales manager for Brunswick’s Valiant Lda and in the past 10 years as sales director in Spain for the Survitec Group.

Ocean Safety specialises in the worldwide supply, distribution, service and hiring of marine safety equipment including liferafts, lifejackets, EPIRBs, and fire extinguishers. The UK company is headquartered in Southampton.
