IMRF Associate Member HamiltonJet is sponsoring this year’s IMRF #WomeninSAR Award.

The IMRF Awards are in their 6th year and are internationally recognised and highly regarded by the maritime search and rescue (SAR) community worldwide. 

The #WomeninSAR Award was introduced in 2019, as part of the IMRF’s #WomeninSAR campaign to raise the profile of women in the sector, and to increase the representation of, and support for women in SAR.

Albear Montocchio, Global Marketing Manager, HamiltonJet says: “We are pleased to be supporting the IMRF Awards in this way, the SAR sector is vitally important and deserves this recognition for the exceptional skill and performance of volunteers and professionals at the times when its needed most."

We are particularly pleased to support women in SAR, long under-represented, gender balance definitely enhances team performance, we all have different skills and strengths and balanced teams[CJ1]  work better and deliver more.  There are so many exceptional women in the sector, by highlighting some of them we can hopefully encourage more women and girls to explore the many exciting opportunities available to them.

The company’s waterjet and control systems deliver manoeuvrable, reliable and safe prolusion for SAR vessels. 

HamiltonJet has worked with the maritime SAR sector for many decades, making and developing waterjet propulsion systems which can dramatically increase the range of conditions a SAR boat can operate in.

The company recently celebrated its 80th Anniversary and employs more than 400 staff in all aspects of waterjet design, production and service, looking ahead to the next 80 years, HamiltonJet is keen to make diversity and gender balance a priority across all aspects of its business.
