Portfolio expanded by exclusive partnership deal

An exciting start to the year for Barrus as the company introduces the Guidi brand to the Barrus Marine Equipment portfolio.

Italian manufacturer, Guidi has appointed E. P. Barrus as its exclusive national distributor in the UK. Established in 1968, Guidi is a leading name in the marine equipment sector for both commercial and leisure craft.

With over 50 years’ experience in the production of bronze, brass, chrome and nickel-plated accessories including non-stick valves, seacocks, thru-hulls, water strainers and hydraulic fittings, Guidi has achieved thirteen patents; the primary material used being bronze.

Ben Allen, General Manager for the Marine Leisure Division at Barrus commented, “Guidi is a key brand addition to our marine equipment line-up. We are delighted to be associated with such a forward-thinking and progressive manufacturer who are committed to maintaining high quality standards. The Guidi brand not only presents us with opportunities in the marine sector, but there are applications for these products across other sectors of the Barrus Business.”

Bruno Guidi, the founder of Guidi Srl, commented, “My sons and I are proud to become part of the Barrus family. Joining our efforts we will be able to keep innovating and supplying our products to the UK market, not only satisfying requests coming from leisure and professional nautical businesses, but also from other fields in which Barrus operates.”

The new agreement commenced on 1 January 2021. There will be a six-month transition period with the current distributors and Barrus will become the exclusive distributor on the 1 July 2021. Guidi products will be presented in Barrus' new 2021 Marine Equipment Catalogue.
