West System International (a division of Wessex Resins and Adhesives) manufactures and provides international support for the world-renowned WEST SYSTEM and PRO-SET marine epoxy brands.
Since Michigan boatbuilding brothers Meade, Joel and Jan Gougeon first experimented with the bonding power of epoxy over 50 years ago, the WEST SYSTEM® and PRO-SET® product ranges have become the epoxies of choice for private boat owners, boat manufacturers, chandlers and naval engineers throughout the world.
West System International (WSI) has been working in partnership with Gougeon Brothers, Inc. for more than 30 years, manufacturing WEST SYSTEM and PRO-SET epoxies here in the UK.
WEST SYSTEM and PRO-SET epoxy systems have a long distinguished history that has earned a unique place at the heart of the worldwide epoxy user community. Whether you need an epoxy for laminating, bonding, coating, tooling or infusion, the combined breadth of WEST SYSTEM and PRO-SET products will provide the solution.
Both ranges have passed extensive quality testing – we are approved to ISO 9001 Quality Management - and our products are certified by Lloyds Register.
Visitors to our stand (G144) will be able to talk directly to members of the senior technical team at WSI. This is a very popular feature of our stand, and enables individuals to get expert advice on all aspects of boat building, repair and maintenance.
