Ship Hatch Covers
2nd April, 2018
The enquiry came in with the customer sending us a photo and the question “Can you make this?” After replying with a yes, we gathered product specifications and provided a cost and lead-time for the hatch packing.
Natural rubber and sponge was chosen as the material for this project. This is what the Aquaseal door packing is made from. It is made in the UK by Aquaseal Rubber Ltd only and the construction is special designed for the watertight door and hatch used in the marine environment.
As the customer was based in Lithuania, communication was via email and a few phone calls over a two month period which resulted in us winning the order and manufacturing could commence as soon as we had won the job. This project had a particularly challenging customer lead time as well as the special size of the door that the packing was required for.
At the end of this project, we had a very satisfied customer who has since returned for another set of seals for his second ship.
Doug, Production Manager said “This was a very interesting job to be part of as we know our product works very well from the feedback we get from our UK clients. It’s really good to know our product and its quality is being found in other countries and we’re getting great feedback from them. It is even better when they are satisfied and return for more products!”
