Breedt Production Tooling and Design is an innovative small company from the partner country of HANNOVER MESSE 2016, the United States of America. The city of Kent, where Breedt PTD is located, lies just 30 kilometers south of Seattle - and it's also right on the waterfront. No wonder, then, that the product it's unveiling in the USA Industrial Supply Pavilion is a maritime innovation. Breedt PTD has developed a groundbreaking new fender system that could soon be protecting small and large harbors all over the world from the relentless ramming they suffer.

With a valuable hand from German sealant and rubber specialist M+R from Seligenstadt, this newly designed fender looks set to place all the existing systems well and truly in the shade. Manufactured from zinc-free EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber, the fender is REACH-certified (EU chemicals regulation) and thus meets the strictest environmental criteria. Thanks to their various hollow compartments, the distinctly modular fenders can absorb impacts with little counter-reaction, no matter the angle or speed of the knock. And these floating fenders are just as efficient at low or high tide, as they’re always at just the right height to provide optimum protection. What’s more, the basic design concept is extremely adaptable, so it can easily be customized to meet the requirements of a wide variety of maritime facilities.
