PLASTIMO - Happy boating to you!
In 1963 PLASTIMO started in Lorient on the French Atlantic coast with a range of 80 water sports products. Founder of the family business was Antoine Zuliani. Toward the end of the seventies, the figures revealed a lot more: PLASTIMO now sold 2,500 products, had 400 employees and founded its first subsidiary in the UK. Research and development focused on safety and compasses. In 1992 the PLASTIMO Offshore Compass received the French Industrial Design Award. In the mid-nineties PLASTIMO strengthened its reputation as a specialist in safety and pioneered the production of automatic lifejackets.
SILVA Group was founded in 1933 by the Swedish Bröderna Kjellström and Instrumentverken companies. In the beginning, mostly compasses and headlamps were produced. The portfolio continues to focus on outdoor equipment for ambitious athletes and the Navy. The Swedes attach importance to quality and mature, reliable products that withstand the adversities of the Scandinavian climate and meet the needs of an athlete even under the most extreme conditions. Proof for this: the OutDoor Industry Award was given three times to SILVA products. The Outdoor Oscar has been presented since 2005 by an independent panel of experts with regard to functionality, innovation, workmanship and sustainability of new products.
