Maritime Progress Ltd (MPL) is the UK market leader for the supply of high quality signage to the global marine industry.  Together, with its array of health and safety related products, including Fire Training, SOLAS, SMPEP, SOPEP manuals, Garbage Management Plans and our range of ISM training posters, MPL is committed to fulfilling its BS EN ISO 9001: 2008 statement “to provide products that contribute to people’s safety, that conform to our customers’ requirements, to deliver them on time and at a competitive price.”

Unlike other signage suppliers, we manufacturer our own Telglow™ Photoluminescent materials (PSPA classed A-D) here in the UK, in the British Port of Harwich and we produce our own Telscape™ safety way guidance system (SWGs).  With Escape route signing presented in a colour coordinated system for deck/level orientation, the responsible person can feel confident that their means of escape and Low Location Lighting (LLL) signage requirements can be accommodated by one supplier, providing full traceability to fulfill quality assurance requirements.

This year we are very excited to launch our new photoluminescent way-finding matting.
