Line Marking News
The latest news in the busy world of Fleet Line Markers
The year has started with an exciting buzz after delivery of first of two spectrometers, one located in our UK laboratory and the other destined for our Labs in Asia. These give us the ability to monitor at “element level” all raw materials as well as Quality Control what we produce and ship as finished Fleet product.
3 new paint mixers have also been ordered and are due for delivery in March, these will increase the output and variety of products Fleet can produce.
Iain McGuffie stated “I believe this maintains Fleet as having the largest manufacturing capability and most bought product in the European sports line marking paint market by far, if you include the Fleet America and Fleet NZ manufacturing operations, this makes Fleet the brand of choice world wide”.
What does this mean for the customer? It means that fleet manufactures the best available products at the best price, and does it cleanly, as Fleet always looks after the environment.
Fleet is asking customers to check the wording in advertisements, and online. There are machines and paints, that on the outside resemble the Kombi, Fastliner, or even sound like Fleet paints.
MD Iain McGuffie was speaking to a well known grounds person who had experienced a paint that sounded like Pitchmarker (A branded line marking paint manufactured by Fleet for over 60 years) the supplier apparently does not even manufacture paints but brands a paint made by a third party, but this obviously does not have the Fleet logo on it. The grounds person complained to us about the quality of the paint, and Fleet advised them it was not manufactured by Fleet., the cost was nearly twice as much as he could have bought the genuine paint from Fleet. The good news is that Fleet guarantee the best price and quality as well as maintaining the high environmental standards. Fleet products are branded by the Fleet Logo, so please if you are looking for a genuine fleet product look for the logo.
Demanding the quality and exact results that can only be delivered by the World’s only laser guided line marker, The BeamRider, it’s no wonder so many top premiership clubs have opted to invest in the technology.
It’s not only the UK clubs taking advantage, BeamRider’s are currently being used in France, Germany, Spain, America, New Zealand and Australia to name but a few.
