Wibit Sports marks 20 years of operations

Wibit Sports marks 20 years of operations
February 8, 2017

Leading aquatic inflatables manufacturer Wibit Sports has recently marked its 20th anniversary of operations by participating in the Boat Show Dusseldorf - the biggest water sports trade show in the world.

In 1997 the young entrepreneurs Romann Rademacher and Robert Cirjak who had just founded their new company, took their initial business step in exhibiting the very first water trampoline in Europe at the same event.

Since that time the company has evolved continuously is recognised as probably the most innovative and renowned brand in the sports park industry with installations in over 75 countries worldwide.

Wibit Sports Park features are installed at a number of Australian locations, with operators of inflatable aquatic playgrounds reporting successful summer seasons across the country.

Standards Australia has also advised that a new version of the Standards Australia Publication - AS 3533.4.5 - Waterborne Inflatables has been published.

The new Standard appears to not yet be available for purchase, but Australasian Leisure Management will update readers on the release of this Standard when information becomes available.
