The Quick S.p.A. Group developed and expanded internationally thanks to PM, a company founded in 1983. The Company began operating in the nautical industry selling accessories and providing technical assistance aboard vessels.
Experience honed over the years and innate passion led the Company to acquire in 1992 a small firm that produced commands for on-board devices.
Since 1992, the Company has expanded its 19,200 m2 production facility located in an area of 59,000 m2, expanding production to 5 lines with Quick Nautical Equipment, and to2 brands in the lighting sector, Quick Marine Lighting and Quicklighting.
The components of an LED and the way that they generate light significantly extend the lifespan of bulbs. Where other bulbs’ lifespans are shortened through both proper and improper usage, the LED bulb’s low heat levels, durability, and energy efficiency make it possible for it to outlast other types of bulbs by thousands of hours. Typically, the important parts of a light bulb, such as the filament, weaken over time, which causes the bulb to burn out. But LEDs don’t burn out the same way that other bulbs do; instead, the amount of light they produce decreases gradually in what is called “lumen depreciation”. The lifetime of an LED bulb is based on how long it takes for the lumen output of the bulb to decrease to 30%, so it will likely last longer than the average rated lifetime hour listed on the box if you don’t mind or don’t noticed the decreased illumination. Certain cheaper LED bulbs will only last about 5,000 hours, which is still 4,000 – 3,000 hours longer than the average rated lifespan of an incandescent, but many branded bulbs are rated for over 25,000 hours
Because of their high lumen output per watt, LEDs are capable of turning about 70% of their energy into light. This makes them much more efficient than other bulbs, which waste a lot of energy by turning it into heat. It only takes a 6 watt LED bulb to produce the amount of light that a 40 watt incandescent does, and their lower temperature also makes them safer to operate. In comparison, incandescent bulbs can get so hot that they should be kept out of reach of children who might burn themselves, and they have also been known to cause fires if they accidentally come into contact with flammable materials, such as curtain fabric.
Quick S.p.A. is a leader company in Italy and worldwide in manufacturing accessories for sailing boats and yachts. It begins in the early 80s as an initiative by some professionals with training and expertise acquired in the Comar shipyard, manufacturer of the legendary Comets. In the same context, made of names destined to become famous, a small company named PM Marina acquired Quick in 1992, and this very association, solid and innovative, will guide the company towards important goals and the development of a wide array of products, from windlasses to thrusters, from battery chargers to nautical boilers, from remote controls to navigation lights, to the Marine Lighting Quick Division, started in 2007
In 2011, after the experience acquired in the lighting technology was launched
Quick S.p.A., is a point of reference both for quality of products and technological resources able to offer a complete service, from the design to the finished product. Quick was able to manage its own growth by making important decisions such as, for example, the integration of an engineering system, and we are talking about CATT, acquired in 2003. The operative facility, which manufactures mechanical processes and creates molds for plastic materials, is organized with technologically advanced machinery including CAD-CAM stations for designing, different latest generation CNC centres, lathes and other precision devices.
Video overview of Quick Spa
In 1982 Michele Marzucco, together with his business partner Alfonso Peduto, started his experience in the nautical sector at the Comar shipyard, which was renewed for Comet products. Very quickly the two business partners, driven by a great entrepreneurial spirit, founded a small company called PM Marina which was specialized in sales, installation and after-sales management of marine electronics, refrigeration, air conditioning, heating and electrical systems.
Almost ten years later, in 1992, PM Marina acquired Quick and thanks to this merger, the company began to achieve important goals. Since 2006 Quick Spa has been in the United States as Quick USA INC, which develops commercial and technical assistance activities for the USA. Quick Spa is also present in the UK with Quick UK, founded in 2018.
In 2018 Michele Marzucco started a new important challenge, acquiring the shareholder’s shares and opening the company to his two sons, Chiara and Carlo.
In 2019 Quick Spa launched an important expansion of its workforce in Italy and abroad, employing managerial figures with international professional experience.
Quick Spa, an international leader in the production of nautical equipment, designs, produces and engineers all its products in the Italian Headquarters in Ravenna
