It is with great pleasure that Middle East Fuji are our Marine Partner in the Middle East for Portascanner™ Watertight, Portamarine™, Portalevel™ MAX Marine, Portamonitor™ & Permascanner™ Watertight Dynamic. George Hunter, Director of Sales and our CEO spent last week with Captain Machado visiting Shipping & Ship Management customers in Dubai.

Captain Peter Machado COO of Middle East Fuji is an industry veteran and Master Mariner and was also one of our first Fleet users of Portascanner™ Watertight when he was with Kuwait Livestock and Trading. Captain Peter says, “COLTRACO’s Portascanner™ is the product that I am happy to endorse having used the product for many years in the challenging environment of large livestock carriers. Older ship conversions tended to be multipurpose ‘tween deckers and reefer ships and in one unique case, a passenger ship. Watertight integrity was and remains critical as the most recent conversions have been car carriers, container ships and tankers. Portascanner™ is portable, easy to carry and use, and more importantly, very efficient. It is a rugged piece of equipment that actually does the job. Aspects that nudged me towards Portascanner™ include purchase price at good value, good warranty terms, the availability of spares and service stations at major hub ports”.

George says, “Captain Peter epitomises all we look for at Coltraco in a Marine Partner. A man of great kindness, honour and integrity. It is our great pleasure to work with this exceptional man and this fine global marine company, particularly now that we have our IMPA part numbers for which we are most grateful to the International Marine Purchasing Association”. Our CEO says, “Peter is a remarkable man, humble, modest and highly capable. As George rightly says, it is our great honour to work with Captain Machado and his fine team, including Ms Melanie and Mr Jibu at Middle East Fuji”.
