Home-grown drysuit manufacturer Hammond Drysuits has announced an expansion to both plant and workforce.

The company’s Kent-based manufacturing facility has been enhanced to cope with extra demand for the Hammond  range of drysuit products.

This expansion to the workshop is timely, as Hammond Drysuits has been chosen as main drysuit repair agent for a number of brands, including Musto, Gill and BARE in the leisure marine market, and E.ON Climate & Renewables, the Environment Agency and London Metropolitan Police in the commercial marine market.

And despite the recession, the company has also increased its workforce by 10 per cent to accommodate a significant rise in demand for both new product and repair work. 

One theory for this extra demand is that the coldest spring in more than 50 years has kept watersport lovers wearing their drysuits for longer, as the summer weather appears to have been on hold.

To mark the occasion for Hammond Drysuits, the company has revealed a new-look logo and branding, which will feature across all new products delivered to both leisure and commercial sectors.

Chris Hammond, owner and Managing Director of Hammond Drysuits, said: “We are pleased to have completed our integrated expansion programme, which has enabled us to significantly increase our capacity to service new and existing customers in both the leisure and commercial sectors.

“Customers have always chosen Hammond Drysuits for our high quality British standards and customer care; now with our new-look branding carrying us forward, we are looking forward to building on that for the future.”
