Returning to METSTRADE


Broomfield, Colorado (USA) — Blue Guard Innovations (BGI) will return to METSTRADE November 19-21 on Stand 12.610 with new products and features introduced since its debut at the show in 2018, where the BGI Smart Bilge Pump Switch (BG-One, shown right) took home an Honorable Mention in the DAME Awards competition.

The solid-state BG-One shuts down the bilge pump when even the smallest amount of oil or fuel is detected in the bilge and engine compartments to prevent accidental discharge overboard.

Also since its METSTRADE debut last year, the BGI distribution network has grown significantly and now includes North and South America, the Caribbean and Australasia. This year at the show, the company will be actively recruiting distributors for the UK and European markets. Interested distributors should contact BGI Global Sales Director Alan Brown to schedule a meeting during the show. Email

BGI has continued to innovate and develop new products since the successful launch of the BG-One. In the past year, the company has launched: the BG-Link Wireless Boat Monitoring System; the BG-HW and BG-SWA, solid state alarm systems to detect high water conditions on board to help prevent potentially disastrous flooding; and the BG-CP-A smart panel, which displays all the essential functions of a bilge pump system.

Products in the BGI range will be demonstrated live during METSTRADE on Stand 12.610.
