Saltwater Communications has been appointed to handle the PR and advertising for Barton Marine, one of the UK's leading manufacturers of deck hardware. Established in 1949, Barton was one of the first companies to introduce laminated plastic (Tufnol) and stainless steel in the manufacture of lightweight yachting blocks. Barton's use of powerful new materials allowed for the production of stronger, lighter sailboat fittings at very competitive prices. That philosophy has continued, with Barton continually seeking to develop products that exceed the yachtsman's expectations.
Since recently moving to new premises, the company has introduced a number of new and technically advanced products. To consolidate its marketing requirements to one source it has now appointed Saltwater to handle the media relations, advertising and later introduction of a new packaging range.
Saltwater is well known in the marine industry as a proactive and innovative agency, working with a number of major marine industry clients. Clive Bartlett, Director of Saltwater commented, "Our team is looking forward to working with Barton as it provides us with the opportunity to make a measurable contribution to the company's profile in all aspects of its marketing strategy. It is great to work with a forward thinking British company with such a highly respected international brand name. Our intention is to raise consumer awareness and bring a professional styling to its media output and consumer facing literature."
