Founded in Sweden in 1974, the Malmsten group of companies sells products and equipment for pools and water sports across the world and aims to lead in terms of new and improved technology, designs and materials.
Malmsten’s exclusive technologies have a strong tradition of being chosen for major international competitions such as Olympic Games and World Championships.
The six-year deal will see Malmsten’s competitor racing lanes and moveable floors exclusively endorsed by British Swimming, while Malmsten will use their experience and knowledge to compliment work undertaken and advice given by the ASA Facilities Department.
British Swimming sponsorship director Katie Brazier is looking forward to forging a strong relationship with Malmsten.
She said: "We are delighted to welcome Malmsten into the British Swimming family.
“I’m sure that the partnership will provide great benefits for both Malmsten and British Swimming.
"Together, and working alongside our other official partners and suppliers, we can provide and recommend the best possible advice and products to the swimming industry. ”
Margareta Malmsten, the President and founder of Malmsten AB, said: “The high standards and excellent swimming tradition of British Swimming will be beneficiary to our corporate strategy and we are much looking forward to this working relationship.
“Our goal at Malmsten is to assist our clients in the creation of beautiful, efficient and cost-effective aquatic centres."
