A message from the President of Innovative Manufacturing


Over the past years, the Innovative family of distributors has grown to service the major shipping centres of the world.  This includes stocking distributors in 36 countries with extensive stock at our Master Distributors for Europe and Asia, Innovative Europe in Rotterdam and Kinley Marketing Inc. in Singapore.  It is gratifying to see the close cooperation by this extensive group who have come to know each other through meeting at the many marine trade shows that we attend annually.  In keeping with our name, Innovative has a steady program of development of new products with the corresponding testing and industry classification approvals.  In this direction, I am excited to announce the new type approvals from Lloyd’s for Nospray Shields, the only type approved standard size and custom SOLAS protective shields for fuel lines and Exowrap, an easily applied high temperature insulated blanket.  I am very happy to announce that we will be increasing our management strength with the appointment of my brother, Clark Anderson as Managing Director of the Innovative Group.  Clark is a Chartered Accountant with over 30 years experience in management consulting and has great enthusiasm for his new position.  I will move to the Chairman position.  We also have a new Managing Director of the Marine Division.  Peter Thorn is a very experienced Sales Representative and we look forward to working with him.  Clark and Peter will be at OSEA 2012 in Singapore at the end of November 2012.  Please contact Peter with any queries about any of our marine products.
