After 30 years in the nautical sector, and as a global benchmark for boating equipment, Marine Business is now bringing its experience and its singular “Lifestyle” to the Outdoor sector.
The unbreakable tableware and glassware, initially conceived for the nautical sector, have now been designed for use in the garden, on terraces, spas, hotels, around swimming pools… where, for even more relaxation, it is important to be surrounded by practical items that are still stylish, making life outdoors more fun, relaxing and comfortable. This is reflected in our slogan: COMFORTABLE OUTDOOR EXPERIENCES.
Marine Business is extending its market. The latest countries to join the list are Egypt and Oman. Now Marine Business is present across the 6 continents, through stores and distributors in over 57 countries.
In 2015 Marine Business celebrated 30 years in the market.
Year after year new challenges have been overcome, bringing great rewards: Marine Business is now a leader in the design and marketing of nautical accessories for the table, bathroom and cabin thanks to all its loyal customers who continue to enjoy its products, and who we hope will continue to grow with us.
In 2001 the Company changed location. MB acquired facilities of 2000 m2 to enhance management and customer service. The Comfort on Board division continued its international expansion with the introduction of its nautical accessories in Brazil, Russia, Finland, Cyprus, New Caledonia, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Lebanon etc. The Comfort catalogue has been extended to offer a great diversity in boating equipment material. MB has also increased its participation at International Boat Shows.
Consolidation of the export activity of the Comfort on Board division. The MB nautical accessories start being sold in Norway, Sweden, Austria, Turkey, Switzerland, Antilles, the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Russia, Argentina, Hungary, Malta, Denmark and Monaco.
Marine Business starts displaying its collections in METS (Amsterdam) and Paris (France). The sales force network is formed in Italy, France and Greece.
In the technical division, official services increase up to 22 with the addition of sole distribution for Spain and Portugal of the plasma TV hoists Sea & Symphony.
The Comfort on Board division starts its international expansion with exports to Portugal, France, Italy, Greece, Germany and England. MB takes part for the first time at the Genoa International Boat Show (Italy).
Meanwhile, the technical division begins to create its Official Services Network and is given sole distribution of the brand TECMA. With its international recognition and numerous quality awards, the TECMA toilet brand specialises in manufacturing top quality, silent and low consumption electric toilets for boats.
In this period Marine Business consolidates its wholesaling activity in Spain by distributing to the majority of nautical stores and shipbuilders its nautical household articles and technical accessories for boats. As well as sole distribution of Besenzoni for Spain and Portugal, it also distributes the Italian lighting for boats brand Forcato. Later on, as a result of its experience as a nautical store and due to nautical market requirements for household and cabin products for sailing, the Marine Business Comfort on Board division creates its own design and production department of exclusive nautical items, thus producing its own collections and creating a wide range of matching nautical tableware and nautical bed linen for cabins and bathrooms.
Marine Business, S.A starts its activity as a nautical shop in the centre of Barcelona. Its activity starts with two very different divisions:
The Technical Division, for professionals. It starts with sole distribution rights for Spain and Portugal of Besenzoni, a highly prestigious brand in the international nautical market and leader in sales of hydraulic gangways, telescopic cranes, pilot seats, electric cockpit biminis, table supports, etc.
The Comfort on Board Division: only for the general public at the beginning, it was a nautical shop that sold accessories for the table, kitchen, cabin, bathroom and deck. In the early days personalised table and glassware were also made for boats, as well as tailor -made bed linen, hence the Marine Business slogan: “we dress your boat”.
In 1985, Marine Business takes part for the first time at the Barcelona Boat Show.
Over time, the Company becomes more and more professional and specialises in nautical material for comfort on board and begins to supply nautical stores, shipbuilders and other professionals in the nautical sector. The two divisions, different yet complementary, remain today.
