Mares announces new UK distributor

Head UK is taking on full responsibility for the sales, marketing and distribution of all Mares diving products in Britain from 15 February this year.

For the past 30 years, Mares was represented in Britain by Blandford Sub-Aqua, whose employees Dave Green and Justin Hanning now move over to Head UK, and will now work in the roles of national account manager and product manager respectively.

Both are respected figures within the UK diving industry and have been associated with Mares for many years.

Mark Jenkins, MD of Blandford Sub-Aqua, said: "While being disappointed to be losing the Mares brand from our business, we understand the reasons why the Head Group has taken this decision and wish them well with their new venture."

The president of Mares SpA, Gerald Skrobanek, thanked the staff of Blandford for their hard work and wished them the best for the future. "Times are changing and we felt having recently established Head UK to represent our racket and ski business, it was logical from a business perspective to bring our brands together under one house," he said.
