In a further fillip to the local boatbuilding industry, well-known maritime supplier Marine Connect has secured a distribution partnership with prominent UK firm Barton Marine. Marine Connect, under the helm of local sailing stalwart Warren Harvey, will supply Barton’s wide range of deck equipment into the local market. In all, the range comprises around 2000 products.
Marine Connect will also provide strategic sales planning, targeted sales efforts and results monitoring “to ensure maximum availability of the Barton Marine brand to sailors across the country,” Barton said in a global press release issued earlier this month.
Suzanne Blaustone, Barton Marine CEO said, “Improving the supply of our extensive deck hardware range in South Africa has been on our agenda for some time and it is great to partner with Warren at Marine Connect to drive our efforts forward. South Africa is an important marketplace with a long history of sailing excellence. The improved availability of the Barton range will provide sailors with a better option to upgrade and repair their yacht equipment.”
Warren Harvey said, “We are excited and proud to have partnered with Barton Marine by being awarded sole distribution rights for their products in South Africa. The Barton range offers our local South African sailors the opportunity to purchase high end quality products at an affordable price which adds value to the marine industry in South Africa and allows our sailors
to have world class products at their disposal.”
