The UK’s largest producer of fire rated modular architectural systems for the offshore and marine industries has launched a new division to support manufacturers, agents and partners worldwide.

BD Products Limited will provide an active interface between BD’s global customers and the company’s R&D and product development activities, working with customers, often installers, to review their experience of working with BD Systems in offshore and marine environments.

BD Group managing director Ian Leppard says, “BD’s product portfolio, reputation and growth are built on innovation to deliver robust internal and external structural solutions in challenging environments.”

“BD Products has been set up to help accelerate our new product development programme, by feeding customer experience directly and more rapidly into our R&D processes.”

The new company will also be engaged in assessing BD’s performance overall in meeting customer expectations, with additional responsibility for the Group’s international marketing and business development programme.
