Guidi Srl, the renowned Italian manufacturer of valves, sea inlet filters and accessories for the marine and naval market, continues its lively growth. Soon after announcing the opening of the subsidiary in the United States, Guidi America Inc., based in Saint Augustine, Florida, the Italian company took part in the 63rd Genoa International Boat Show with a special focus on the materials used for its products, which guarantee the highest standards of quality, safety and sustainability of the market.
The thread running through Guidi Srl’s exhibition space at the Genoa Boat Show was the materials used in the production of items that are then placed on the market. In particular, the company stressed, “we wanted to highlight the core features of non-ferrous materials – like bronze, brass, and aluminium – which we make an extensive use of when producing for the boating sector. Indeed, if properly maintained, these materials have a longer life than plastic, and their chemical and physical properties remain unchanged in the long term”.
Equally noteworthy is their sustainability: non-ferrous materials are, in fact, 100% recyclable, almost indefinitely, and are therefore to be preferred to plastic from an environmental viewpoint, too. Indeed, not only plastic requires a more complex and expensive recycling process, but, after being used once, it can never be recycled entirely.
“Guidi has been promoting a far-reaching awareness-raising campaign on these technical aspects for some time now, also through a dedicated section on our website which includes detailed documents as well as supporting data and figures”, announces the company. Genoa Boat Show was precisely an excellent opportunity to share this precious information with boat builders and owners alike.
“We are always pleased to be back at Genoa Boat Show, an event that over the years has contributed to our steady growth both on the Italian market and abroad – said Daniele Guidi, Quality & Sustainability manager at Guidi Srl – It’s a very positive time for us: the yachting industry is still very lively, particularly on the domestic market, which is the one the Genoa Boat Show is mainly targeted at. At the same time, enlargement works at our industrial site are continuing, divided over three lots: we are expecting to complete all building activities by the end of this year, after which we will be able to rely on an additional 840 sq. metres and, consequently, to grow even faster”.
After the Genoa Boat Show, Guidi also took part in the B2B event IBEX held in Tampa, Florida, from 3 to 5 October 2023 (stand 2-213) where the new US subsidiary was presented.
