Tidal Marine is a new line of marine products manufactured in the Pacific Northwest. The name is new, but the company that manufactures Tidal Marine Products – Northwest Plastics Ltd. – has been a pioneer in producing rotational molded plastic products since 1973. For over 45 years we have manufactured some of the most advanced marine buoy products of all sizes. We forged new ground when we were the first to produce plastic buoys. Now we have buoys that have been in the water for over 25 years in just about every part of the world. Tidal Marine is manufactured by Northwest Plastics Ltd in the Pacific Northwest. This means that as the manufacturer, if one of our standard floats or buoys don’t quite meet your needs, we can develop a solution to meet your needs. Just get in touch and tell us about your project and we will be happy to help.
