Business on even keel as anti-roll agreement signed

The first agreement to be signed since moving to new premises sees The SMS Group take on distribution and installation for Tohmei Industries Anti Rolling Gyro (ARG) system.

Nicholas Warren, Commercial Director for The SMS Group,  comments, “The product is fantastic and the results speak for themselves, the customers love it. Easy installation, easy operation - and a keen price.”

“From our Southampton base we’ll be acting as both the UK distributor and retro-fit installer.  Stephen Harrold, one of our senior engineers, has been trained specifically by Tohmei and we believe the retro-fit opportunity, not only locally, but also nationally, will be sizeable.”

Nick added: “Given our core customer base we believe we’re well connected and well networked to be able to sell directly to both yacht owners in the leisure market, and also the key UK marine manufacturers.  The product is also very well suited to many of our commercial customers too.”

The Tohmei ARG stabiliser is the original ‘Anti Rolling Gyro’ stabiliser. The technology was developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries for space satellites and then adapted for the marine market. With approx. 2,500 units built, there are Tohmei ARGs working off every continent world-wide.

Sojitz Corporation (Sojitz) represents Tohmei’s ARG system exclusively in the European market and has appointed The SMS Group as non-exclusive dealer for the UK market due to its service-led reputation and extensive network within the marine industry.
