Actions Speak Louder Than Words at METS 2022

Johan Lövqvist, CEO of Baltic Lifejackets personally invites you to join him and the team on stand 01.575 during METS to showcase to you in a personal meeting how Baltic is adapting to the changing world we live and work in.

An update from Johan to you.

In March this year, I wrote to friends of Baltic sharing our sadness at the war in Ukraine and the direct impact it was having on our work colleagues and the uncertainty that lay ahead. Baltic has several production lines in Ukraine, we have always maintained regular communication with them and continue to send aid along with other supplies they need. Sadly, the situation remains unchanged and today more than ever we must stand together. We are here to help Ukrainians and we will be there to help them rebuild when the time comes.

It’s times like these that resilience shines through and throughout all this turmoil and uncertainty we continue to strive forward to build a better safer future for those who enjoy the water. Baltic continues to design and manufacture lifejackets, buoyancy aids, flotation clothing and safety lines in Europe with an uncompromising focus when it comes to the safety of the user. We know the best lifejacket is the one you wear, and our team work tirelessly to design products that are comfortable, functional, and stylish to make certain they are worn.
Thank you to all those who work to promote water safety and to companies who are adapting to the changing times in our world. I am very excited about our new Environmental Initiative range, and I hope to be able to show you the products during METS.

May you have a wonderful show and I look forward to seeing you.

What you can see at METS in stand 01.575.

Baltic Lifejackets has acted and has put our environment first as we launch the Baltic Environmental Initiative. Within this initiative customers can rediscover classic products in the Baltic range that are designed for the future.

Here are some key facts about the Baltic Environmental Initiative, the first lifejacket and buoyancy aid range that are manufactured using recycled materials.

– 100% recycled materials where standards allow.
– The buoyant material comprises of scraps of flotation material already used in the manufacturing process whilst the inner/outer fabrics are made from recycled PET bottles.
– 10 x 600ml PET bottles make one lifejacket/buoyancy aid.
– 24% less CO₂ emissions are generated in the production process compared to our traditional range.
– The products are kept in cold storage, or a warehouse powered by solar panels.

Linnéa Gustén, Head of Sustainability at Baltic Lifejackets talks about their plans, “The models launching at METS are just the start. We will be extending the Baltic E.I. range with a goal to have 50% of all Baltic products made from fully or partially recycled materials by 2025. These lifejackets and buoyancy aids are approved to EN/ISO 12402-4/5, and the materials are the same high quality that customers have come to expect from the stand range from Baltic. There is no compromise when it comes to safety at sea.”
New Products and New Colours

At METS this year Baltic launches the first three products in this range: the Radial E.I., the Mist E.I., and the Split Front E.I.

In addition to the new environmentally focused products, Baltic has launched the Poseidon an inflatable lifejacket for ultimate comfort, the Mako inflatable lifejacket for sports fishing, the Splash buoyancy aid for our four-legged friends and the Legend 305 inflatable lifejacket is back by popular demand.
