Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

Leading deck equipment manufacturer, BOPP, will once again be exhibiting at the Irish Skipper Expo. The company, based in France, specialises in the manufacture and design of net drums, winches, gilsons, landing cranes, A-frame, steering gear, windlasses, capstans and hydraulic units for all types of fishing vessels.

Having exhibited at the Skipper Expos for many years, the company’s Sales Manager, David Thepaut, believes that the event is the prime location for meeting customers and keeping up to date with the evolving nature of the industry.

“We attend the Irish Skipper Expo every year to allow us to connect with new and existing customers. It is also a great way for us to be aware of the latest news in the fishing industry here.”

BOPP pride themselves on remaining ahead of the curve and evolving to suit the needs of their customers. In recent years, they have become involved in supplying equipment to the offshore markets and research vessels.

Having supplied equipment for many of the leading Irish trawlers, including the recent newbuilds, Mary Paul and Danny Finn, BOPP are looking forward to meeting skippers to discuss their deck machinery needs.
