COMPANY FOCUS From Classic to Quantum Rolec celebrates its quarter century Rolec Marina Services has been at the forefront of pioneering work to modernise and provide tailored marina service pedestals and other marina services. Formed in 1990, the company came to fame with its Classic service pedestal and is currently preparing to launch the all-new Quantum. Marina World takes a look at the company’s 25 year journey. Rolec has accrued a vast quantity of knowledge and understanding about the unique requirements of the world’s marina industry, resulting in some extremely innovative and dynamic products. The flagship Classic pedestal marked the start of this marina service journey and embodies the Rolec success story – it is flexible, adaptable, tried, tested and reliable – and still extremely popular today. Over 100,000 Classic units have been sold to date. The Classic is just one product that has enabled Rolec to garner an enviable reputation as a world leading specialist in marina services. This has also been made possible by the hard work of its experienced members of staff, who share a collective total of over 150 years of working specifically within the marina services industry. Rolec managing director, Kieron Alsop, believes the company’s success is down to energy and vision. “We feel that what has set Rolec apart from other companies in the marina services industry for over two decades is our ethos of progressive, continual product development. This is fused with a vision to evolve marina service pedestals in a pioneering way, using our vast knowledge of the industry. You would be Rolec Seawave pedestals installed at Cesme Marina, Turkey. hard-pressed to find another company that has the depth of knowledge, coupled with the vigour, we have at Rolec,” he says. Small beginnings Rolec started out in Wisbech, England, with just three members of staff who worked from a small office. The company now employs over 100 personnel, has a network of over 40 agents around the world, and is based in Boston, England, at a new purposebuilt, multi-million pound office and factory site. It even has an academy, which is a regular hive of activity as agents, customers and potential clients converge to learn more about the marina industry and the company’s products. Rolec’s formative years were spent steadfastly working with pontoon manufacturers and key marina figures in the UK, building up a solid reputation. The company always listens to feedback and this was particularly important in its development of the best-selling Classic, which turned old fashioned wooden posts at marinas into the fully fledged service pedestals we recognise today. Success of the Classic helped Rolec cement its reputation as a leading UK marina services specialist and enabled it to introduce further new marina pedestals and technologies in later years. Looking at export The company’s growing reputation was a springboard for export into Europe, namely to Barneville-Carteret, France, while working with long-term trading partner Poralu Marine. Partnerships have been crucial to the company’s ongoing success, The MegaMaster range is perfectly designed to meet the needs of marinas such as Port Adriano, Spain. - November/December 2015 31
