We are pleased to announce that Go-Dive is now running under new ownership. A new partnership between Mark James (owner of MSDS Marine) and James Parsons (current shop manager employed at Go-Dive) have now taken over the ownership and running of the shop, online sales and training. MSDS Marine are a commercial dive company who bring a wealth of specialist knowledge to the business. James will continue to provide a friendly face in the shop and provide his in-depth knowledge gained from 15 years of Go-Dive experience to ensure customers can buy with confidence. Jon will continue to offer the high standard of equipment servicing that customers have come to expect, the team will also be joined by Alison at the beginning of June.
Expect to see lots of new lines for sale in the coming months and some exciting discounts and promotions. Mark and James would like to invite all customers, old and new, to come and say hello in the shop on Sunday 3rd June, 11am -3pm, when there will be some great promotions to be had. We will be offering free air fills on the day as well as having a free BBQ (weather dependant!).
We’d like to thank Mark Hudson, the previous owner, for giving the new team this opportunity. He has spent the last 25 years building up a successful brand and we hope that we will be able to continue to build on the foundations he has laid. We wish him well in his future endeavours!
