The BAXT range of consumable products for marine and composite users is now available in the UK.
BAXT, part of the AMBA Group, has taken over and redefined the BEST Products range of consumables, offering solutions developed for the requirements of the modern paint shop and composite manufacturing workshops.
“We’re working closely with an expert product development team to re-engineer some of the existing market leading options and are excited to offer genuine solutions for businesses operating in the growing composite industry," explains Lou Street, Procurement Director for AMBA. "We are a professional team from engineering backgrounds looking to innovate and change the game for the better.”
BAXT will continue to develop consumable products specifically for the paint shops of marine, composite and industrial facilities. A wide range of fibreglass and advanced composite engineering businesses are already said to using BAXT consumables.
“My production team are hard to impress and like most, never like change," states Scott King, Business Manager at MouldCAM. "But after putting the BEST sanding discs to use on the fibreglass moulds and patterns in the workshop, all I hear now are good things about the quality and longevity of these new sanding products. I’m very keen to see what BAXT has to offer.”
