Bowmer Buys Bowstone Diving Products
In 1990 Brit diver and textile worker Simon Rodger made some diving accessories for himself. He had discovered that he could not find what he needed. Rodger’s products soon got noticed, and it wasn’t long before he was manufacturing a variety of pouches and weight belts for the UK diving industry.
“I could see a gap for diving accessories that divers needed and wanted, hence I combined my textile expertise with my diving knowledge. The result was Bowstone Diving Products.”
Bowstone has been quietly successful, hence twenty six years later – on 1st July 2016 – Bowmer Bond Narrow Fabrics Limited bought Bowstone Diving Products.
“Simon Rodger will continue to be involved in Bowstone Diving Products, servicing existing operations, providing expertise and developing new business opportunities“, stated Mark Allender, Finance Director of Bowmer Bond Narrow Fabrics. “This is very much “business as usual” and you be can rest assured that customer service and reliability will be maintained.”
“I am very happy with this decision“, stated Simon Rodger. “Bowmer Bond operates certified quality management systems to ISO 9001. I am proud to say that products in the Bowstone Diving range despatched by Bowmer Bond will now be covered by this certification. This move is going to allow me to concentrate on something I love doing, product design and manufacturing“.
