After selling that business in 2004, Brad went fishing for a year. Literally! Every Monday night Brad and his mate Rod would head off down to Kuramine Beach (south of Cairns) for 2½ days of fishing and golf.
Always knowing he would stay in the marine industry, Brad wanted his focus to be a business style that avoided the time constraints and stress that doing marine refits gives you. Having had to develop their own ventilation equipment for refit clients engine room ventilation challenges through 1990-2004 allowed Brad to see that there was a market for Australian made, affordable, long lasting engine room grilles, air dampers (fire flaps) and fans.
Drawing upon his extensive experience in the maintenance of commercial and fishing vessels, Brad started Marine Air Flow International with the sole purpose of creating a product to enable better engine room operating conditions, with the added advantage of promoting a safer working environment for all those in the marine industry.
Today we manufacture engine room air intake grilles, fans and dampers to suit any private or commercial applications.
