Marine Equipment Highlights of 2019
Published on: 17/12/2019
A lot can happen in a year, and that is undoubtedly true for the Barrus Marine Equipment Division following its inception in August last year.
Since announcing its launch into the marine chandlery sector at Southampton Boat Show 2018 with the core product offering of Talamex, a complete single branded chandlery range, Besto life-jackets, G-Nautics boat accessories and Stazo boat safety systems, the Barrus Marine Equipment Team has secured the distribution of over 20 new, leading brands.
Barton, Blue Gee, Glomex, Lowrance and Simrad are just a few of the brands in the line-up combining a whole range of products to cater for every area of a boat; from small day boats to superyachts. The latest distribution partnership to be secured is with one of the world’s largest manufacturers of high-performance yacht coatings, boat paints and marine protective coatings, International Paint Ltd.
“The carefully selected mix of brands and products is part of our continuing strategy to build an extensive portfolio of premium brands that offer the marine trade a single source of supply combined with the support of a company offering over 75-years’ experience in the marine industry,” commented Ben Allen, General Manager for the Marine Leisure Division.
There is a comprehensive UK stock holding of products across the ranges and all brands benefit from Barrus’s renowned distribution operation based centrally at their headquarters in Bicester providing a highly efficient service and support systems to satisfy and exceed the requirements of the industry.
SailForce, supported by the specialised Marine Equipment Team at Barrus offer advice to customers in all aspects of the business and the experienced in-house Merchandising Team can provide tailored in-store display solutions and assistance for new installations.
“It has been a busy year for our Marine Equipment Division and internal support teams who have been responsible for handling the introduction of multiple brands,” commented Tim Hart, Director of Sales & Marketing at Barrus. “We owe our success to our experienced Operations Team and the commitment of the Sales Team in driving the business forward and creating an exceptional range of brands and products to service the needs of the UK marine industry.”
