Otter Dry Suits
Manta Industries is proud to announce that we are now the otter drysuit distributor for the United States.
Otter Watersports began in the upstairs room of an old mill and within 2 years had expanded, taking over the entire building. Within only 5 years Otter Watersports relocated into an old refurbished Wool mill, but again we outgrew the premises and desperately needed more space. We are now in an old Chapel which was originally built in 1816 and throughout it’s colourful history has been involved with the wool and textile industry and then was used for heavy industrial work. The property was then half demolished for proposed plan’s of being a dance hall, but alas, these plans never came to fruition and the property then spent the next 12 years as a derelict wreck. We acquired the site at the end of 2001 and have spent the last three years rebuilding and renovating the site to a usable building. This site now give’s us nearly 19,000 sq ft of manufacturing and sales space together with a large parking area for Customers and Staff.
Otter Watersports has always been quality driven, each suit receiving a unique number to allow quality to be closely monitored through out its manufacturing process Each suit is made by just one person, where traceablity ensures constant quality. With each suit being pressure tested for 12 hours without loss of pressure, there is no such thing as a nearly dry Otter Dry Suit. Otter has achieved C.E. approval for all its suits.
Our Pride is Otter Quality
