GARETH Houston 25, may not be a household name, but he is presently making his mark in the marine industry. The marine manager for Hurricane Fenders comes from a yachting background and is no stranger to marine life. Yachting Life caught up with Gareth and an interesting story unfolded.

‘Three years ago an infant fender company from Cornwall came to the attention of me and my team. Due to my experience in plastics manufacturing and my background I saw an opportunity to expand into the marine industry.

I recognised that the initial product range was fantastic and, as we already had a plastic manufacturing base with over a hundred staff, I knew that we could improve this product and offer a more durable fender whilst increasing the production capacity.
