SMG joins line up of marine businesses at Trafalgar Wharf
Marine electronics distributor, SMG, is opening a new sales office at Trafalgar Wharf in Portsmouth, as part of the company’s expansion plans.
The new office will provide local sales support and demonstration facilities for SMG’s South Coast trade customers, including training, product launches and sales promotions. Trafalgar Wharf’s marina and launching facilities will enable SMG to host on water demonstrations in a variety of boat brands and product ambassador’s own vessels.
“Despite the global challenges as a result of the Coronavirus, SMG have grown sales compared to 2019; something that I would not have thought possible in the dark days of April and May,” comments SMG’s MD, Ray Badminton. “So, we have pushed ahead with our expansion plans to offer local sales support to all our South Coast customers. The excellent facilities at Trafalgar Wharf made it an obvious choice. Easy road access, plenty of parking, a light airy office, waterside demonstration facilities and even a great café right outside our door. We look forward to welcoming our customers to show them round.”
SMG’s sales manager Nick Edgington adds: “The new office and showroom will open at the end of September when I look forward to opening the doors to our trade customers to enable them to showcase the latest marine products, including those from Garmin, Simrad, B&G, Lowrance, Raymarine and Icom to their end user customers.”
Jonny Boys, MD of The Trafalgar Group says: “I’m excited to welcome SMG to Trafalgar; It will be great to have another business here making the most our facilities. They join a strong line of up marine businesses already operating here, that includes AXOPAR Boats London, Magma Structures, Kings Marine, Ballistic RIBs, Racetec Rigging, PDL Marine and Boatability.”
