Guidi valves

Guidi at the Genoa Boat Show, an ever expanding reality

////

Once again this year, Guidi Srl took part in the Genoa International Boat Show, now in its 62nd edition. On display at booth TP06 in the upper pavilion B were the world-famous anti-block valves, sea intakes, drains, water purification filters and nautical fittings that have been synonymous with the highest quality for years. A quality that, moreover, our editorial staff continues to monitor, having installed the Italian company‘s sea intakes on board the Daydreamer, our lab- boat, for a good five years.

The participation in the Genoa boat show, traditionally a reference point for national customers, comes at a time when the market is still very positive, with the trend of orders up sharply compared to last year. Of course, the general increase in the cost of energy is being closely monitored even if, fortunately, the company has also made its efforts for some time, installing photovoltaic panels that provide a good portion of the energy consumed.

Guidi-booth-GenoaWork is also continuing at the Grignasco site, which will allow Guidi Srl to improve production efficiency and speed up the logistics chain by expanding production and storage space. The development of new products also continues, thanks to the collaboration with external partners.

September is a month of great excitement for us: we are fresh from our first participation in the SMM in Hamburg, dedicated to the naval sector, and now we are returning to the Genoa boat show to consolidate our presence on the national market.

– comments Daniele Guidi, the company’s Quality & Sustainability manager. –

The numbers comfort us but we know that we have to continue working in several directions both to keep costs under control and to recover marginality. It is not easy in the current context, but we have been through much tougher times and we are reasonably confident.”

Guidi announces its participation at SMM Hamburg

Guidi Srl, the Italian manufacturer of non-stick valves, water intakes, thru-hulls, water strainers and pipe fittings for the yachting industry is taking part for the first time in SMM (Hamburg, 6-9 September 2022), the leading event in the naval sector, finally back to being held in person on its thirtieth edition.

The company has decided to start investing in this market by being an exhibitor at the German B2B event. Guidi has, in fact, always actively operated in the work/military boat sector – the one for which the company originally started manufacturing products, back in 1968, before expanding in the yachting segment.

Guidi valvesA large number of trawlers, fishing boats, tug boats and patrol boats all over the world already mount Guidi products, all well-known for their reliability, durability and functionality. Even our lab boat, the Daydreamer, has long been fitted with Guidi valves, which are indestructible and have an almost infinite lifespan.

Guidi products, particularly bronze items – in which the company is a pioneer -, are also largely appreciated by major builders of mega yachts.

It is mainly water strainers, up to DN 250, that hold a high potential on this specific market, although, as a matter of fact, almost all products in Guidi’s range can be easily installed on a ship’s secondary systems, like gensets, water makers, and air conditioning or drinking water piping systems.

We believe that the reputation we have built in over fifty years’ experience in the yachting industry is our best calling card to expand our activity in the naval sector too – states the Company’s Quality & Sustainability Manager, Daniele Guidi – SMM is a very interesting growth opportunity for us: its being a B2B event means we are certain that we will find a highly qualified and aware international clientele, capable of fully appreciating the high technical content and top quality of our products”.

Guidi Srl will exhibit at Hall A2, booth 111. For more information, please visit the following LINK
