Following the nomination at the prestigious Dame Design Award – the prize dedicated to the most innovative products in marine leisure equipment that can mark a significant step forward in terms of functionality, design and innovation – the Besenzoni helm seat P400 Matrix is now ready to join the Mets Trade in Amsterdam, the world’s largest marine equipment trade show, from 14 to 16 November. The Sarnico-based company is therefore preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary with a new accolade for its ongoing activity and unceasing efforts on research and development.
Marine equipment evolution is an almost genetic trait for Besenzoni that devotes a substantial part of its investments to research activities: 9% of total investments over the last three years. The attention paid to research and development activities is also expressed through a large number of co-operations established with the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Bergamo. ” In addition to the product development, this important collaboration enables us to breathe a new life into our engineering department that works with us actively, by designing new concepts and launching new ideas that are extremely important for us”, Giorgio Besenzoni, Chief Executive Officer of the company, says. It is not a coincidence that the company has already filed 60 different patents.
The helm seat P400 Matrix won’t be unveiled until its official world debut, with the only, obvious, exception of the jury that has included it into the shortlist, in the ” Interior equipment, furnishings, materials and electrical fittings used in cabins” category. Customization is the only certain feature of the product which will be offered in three different versions.
Besenzoni will join the Dutch event with a wide range of products, including two boarding ladders – the SI 154 , with manual operation, teak surface, carbon elements, available with five or nine steps, and the SI603 – an electric pantograph door and the Sun Awnings system with carbon poles.
So, the Sarnico-based company will join the Mets Trade with some of its best products, selected from seven different collections – gangways, tender launch systems (cranes, davits, platforms and sliders), helm seats and supports, boarding ladders, table supports, custom project and carbon line.
All products are an expression of the Besenzoni’s capacity to suit different needs and provide boats of different size, including small sailboats, yachts and even megayachts, with the most efficient solutions. Such a large range has resulted into a 12% turnover growth. Furthermore, all Besenzoni products are custom made in order to suit the different owner’s needs and offer the best in terms of functionality, design and materials.
Aiming at producing high-quality and easy-to-install products, the Italian brand also guarantees a 24-hour assistance service through a network of 187 help centres located in 50 different countries and 164 operating units spread all around the world, efficiently coordinated by the central office.
