INFL-8 presence in the marine world

Shakespeare Marine's GALAXY INFL-8 the world’s first inflatable emergency antenna.

The Challenge

Generating an INFL8-ed presence in the marine industry. ADPR was brought on board by Shakespeare Marine to help raise the profile of the world’s first inflatable emergency antenna, the GALAXY-INFL8.

We are forever grateful for the help and experience ADPR brought to Shakespeare when we introduced the new INFL8 antenna. Shakespeare had little experience of promoting a new products, especially such an award winning one. The support, advice and efforts from ADPR were vital to some of the later awards and also to the continued success.

Thanks to the ingenuity, usability and quality of the product, Shakespeare has – to date – received seven highly respected industry awards for the GALAXY-INFL8, including a DAME Award at METSTRADE, which provided the perfect platform for ADPR to secure even further coverage and media mentions of the multi-award-winning product.
