Fleet and BeamRider are the most technically advanced innovative Companies in line marking, who manufacture and supply laser guided line markers and GNSS guided line markers.

We are very proud to have many patents granted and more in the process of being granted.

BeamRider hold a granted EP Patent No. EP3045998 for the actuating marking arm.

Swozi AG has challenged the validity of this patent and this will be debated at an EPO (European Patent Office) hearing.

BeamRider have been advised that this is a particularly strong patent and expect it will be upheld.

We take our patents very seriously and because of the revenue received directly and indirectly from them means that the Fleet and BeamRider product range, including paints, are continually making the Grounds person’s job easier, more cost effective, as well as improving quality.

Turnaround of our 18 winter pitches at Wellington College has always been a time consuming and labour intensive affair. We have five pitches available for various sports usage throughout the summer lets period, these can regularly change from rugby to football and any other pitch they require and requests are often at short notice.

Once this has finished we need to initial mark 14 rugby pitches, 3 football pitches, a lacrosse pitch and 3 lots of training grids during August for the start of the Michaelmas Term in September.

At Christmas we need to change some of our rugby pitches over to football, then at Easter we need to initial mark 8 rugby pitches for a week-long Rugby Festival. Once that is over we need to initial mark our 400m track, javelin and discus in a very quick turnaround for the start of the summer term.

The year has started with an exciting buzz after delivery of first of two spectrometers, one located in our UK laboratory and the other destined for our Labs in Asia. These give us the ability to monitor at “element level” all raw materials as well as Quality Control what we produce and ship as finished Fleet product.

3 new paint mixers have also been ordered and are due for delivery in March, these will increase the output and variety of products Fleet can produce.

Iain McGuffie stated “I believe this maintains Fleet as having the largest manufacturing capability and most bought product in the European sports line marking paint market by far, if you include the Fleet America and Fleet NZ manufacturing operations, this makes Fleet the brand of choice world wide”.

What does this mean for the customer? It means that fleet manufactures the best available products at the best price, and does it cleanly, as Fleet always looks after the environment.
