HOW IT STARTED | A FAMILY AFFAIR
Ecoworks Marine is a small family business, based in the U.K., run by Scott and his sons Angus and Fraser.
Over fifteen years ago Scott was introduced to two doctors of biochemistry who were, and still are at the forefront of naturally sourced technology. Together they set about fixing problems in commercial cleaning in a more natural way. Ecoworks first started serving land-based markets - and what many don’t know, they still do. In fact, they even supply councils in the U.K. with cleaning products.
In 2015, Angus joined the business. After spending just shy of a decade in the marine industry, it hadn’t gone unnoticed how many toxic cleaning chemicals were being used and how little alternatives there still were in the marine industry. With a love for the ocean and the environment Angus saw an opportunity to change this and the brand pivoted to serve the marine community.
“We wanted to replace many of the commonly used products within the commercial and leisure sectors of the marine industry so we set about producing clean products for the environment and for us the crews”
Angus, together with his brother Fraser over see the sales and marketing. Angus also still manages to get out on the water and sails on some lovely yachts, that are also customers - and if you follow the brand on Social Media, you can follow his adventures.
