Parmaris, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of lifejackets, has made a key new appointment, as Pete Evans joins the company as Sales Manager.

Parmaris’ client base includes fire brigades, rescue services and traditional marine distribution routes through chandlers and marine outlets as well as manufacturing for many highly regarded own-branding customers.
