BMEA lifetime achievement award

Brian Ash, the Chairman of Mantsbrite Limited, and cofounder and avid supporter of the BMEA, received a “BMEA Lifetime Achievement Award” for his important contributions to the Marine electronic industry at the BMEA Conference earlier this month

Brian established Mantsbrite Limited in 1964 and the company has been successfully supplying electronic navigation and communications equipment to the marine market for nearly half a century. The business has a 175 strong dealer network throughout the UK and Ireland providing services to the leisure, fishing, commercial, and most recently the offshore wind power, sectors of the market

Brian was a co-founder of the BMEA and held the position of Association Treasurer for seventeen years, passing on a healthy balance sheet when he retired from the management committee.

On winning his award Brian said, “I was totally elated. It was wonderful to receive such an award from my industry colleagues.

He added: “Today we need a trade organisation to protect our interests and represent us in the Marine Electronics industry which is a minute part of the small world in which we live

To be respected and to earn a decent living, our engineers need to have acknowledged worldwide qualifications. This can only be achieved by training to universal standards. Those standards should be those of the BMEA and NMEA and I see this as the way forward for us all.
