AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS (12.04.2019) – Celsus UK had a much larger presence, with a corner stand, at the 2019 METSTRADE Show in Amsterdam November 19th-21st.

The Celsus UK stand at the METSTrade Show showcased Kicker and Dynamat products to attendees from across Europe.

Celsus UK staff members Paul Baker, Mike Keenan and Mark Baker traveled from the UK to meet with dealers in the stand. Kicker’s David Glasgow and Jeremy Bale traveled from Stillwater OK to work with the Celsus UK team in the stand.

Mark Baker stated “Dealers stopping at the Celsus UK stand had the chance to learn all about premium performance marine audio from U.S
manufacturer KICKER. The range of premium 12volt audio equipment from the Oklahoma based manufacturer provides the perfect balance of marine engineering, sound quality and value. From source units to speakers, amplifiers and subwoofers KICKER brings an exciting new dimension to the marine entertainment segment… and live by the mantra #GoOverboard! Visitors to the booth also gained insight into the brand’s expanding range of source units for 2020-2021. This much anticipated group of products, which will contain leading edge features, are in line with consumer demands including NMEA compatibility.”

Glasgow, Kicker International Sales Manager, related “We knew going into the METS 2019 that we had some pretty lofty goals for Kicker Marine in Europe. With a lot of hard work, on both the Kicker and Celsus side, we are now poised to accomplish those goals. METS 2019 was bigger than ever and extremely busy with a lot of traffic from all over Europe. It wasn’t just the number of leads this year that Celsus received but the quality as well. Kicker is extremely blessed to be working with such a truly professional organization such as Celsus UK and their Team.”

Beth Maranda, for Dynamic Control, relayed “Celsus UK is a great partner with us. Their success at the MetsTrade show will certainly set the stage for a very good 2020.”

“We were excited to expand our presence at our 6th METS. We believe we have a unique proposition with Kicker and Dynamat in what they currently offer and future product roadmap. Both brands have been very well received in the market and our search for prospective new partnerships continues” Paul Baker, Managing Director, Celsus UK offered.

In the Celsus UK stand dealers also checked out Dynamat’s wide range of acoustic and thermal control materials that address common noise and heat problems on board all manner of vessels. Dynamat products help control noise from vibration, conducted noise and audio/ sound migration as well as insulate areas to help create a more enjoyable environment on-board. The unique DYNABOX speaker enclosure was a focus for many demonstrations.

Concluding, Baker stated “METS continues to be the best show on our marine calendar and allows us to with new and existing contacts. Our much larger stand and position at this year’s MetsTrade Show definitely paid dividends.”
