Griffon Hoverwork’s Marketing & Sales Director NickMacLeod-Ash has just returned from a successful exhibition at Seawork Asia in Shanghai. Working with Griffon’s expert regional Chinese agents Greenboat, Nick exhibited the innovative hovercraft product range and new technology that make them world leaders in this field.
