IBS Boats International, sole UK importer for Valiant RIBs and the Quicksilver range of GRP powerboats is relocating to new premises in North Fambridge, Chelmsford, Essex, to meet future expansion.

Having benefited from continued success over the last 20 years, the company is moving to the 21,500 sq ft facility, which is twice the size of its existing premises and benefits from a waterside location. The move will allow the company to stock a greater range of products and more easily demonstrate products on the water. The relocation will also assist in the continued expansion of ‘Inflatable Boat Supplies’, an in-house company created by IBS Boats in 1995 to complement the boat division, and which stocks a vast range of spare parts and components for all RIBs and inflatables.

“We have outgrown our existing premises and are very excited about the opportunities the increased space will provide,” says Graham Somers, Managing Director. “Our new site will allow us to stock more models, and enable us to better support our network of dealers for both the Valiant and Quicksilver GRP and Inflatable range throughout the UK and Ireland.”

IBS Boats International, is one of the longest established inflatable and rigid inflatable distribution companies. The company, which has over 20 main dealers in both the UK and Ireland, is the sole distributor for Valiant’s 30 plus strong range of RIBs and was appointed as a distributor for Quicksilver Inflatables and their 16-boat range in 2000; and for the Quicksilver range of GRP boats in 2001.
