MINNEAPOLIS, March 1, 2017 — SeaDek Marine Products, a manufacturer of non-skid, closed-cell EVA traction products, has joined the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas as a Platinum Partner — the MRAA’s highest level of corporate partnership.
SeaDek, which recently also sponsored and contributed to the success of MRAA’s 2017 Compensation Study, has demonstrated a deep commitment to supporting the marine dealer body with this membership with the MRAA as well as its participation in last month’s Marine Dealer Conference & Expo.
“We realize that the dealers are the direct connection between builders and their customers,” says Jason Gardner, VP of Marketing for SeaDek Marine Products. “By supporting the dealers we understand that we are better serving our customers and doing our part to help the OEMs grow their business. We are all in this together.”
SeaDek says its product can be tailored to fit a wide variety of applications on just about any type of boat, including additional applications such as swim platforms, cockpit pads, step kits, footwells, gunnels and trailers.
“We know that the SeaDek team has long enjoyed excellent relationships with its boat builder partners,” explains Matt Gruhn, President of MRAA. “We’re thrilled to see that they’re continuing to expand their reach to nurture those same types of relationships with the dealers who are servicing boats and customers on a daily basis. It’s an honor to welcome them onboard.”
SeaDek Marine Products joins a continually growing roster of boat manufacturers, vendors and suppliers that have chosen to support the dealer community through partnership with the MRAA. Find a full menu of partner benefits here.
At the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, we believe that for the marine industry to thrive, the companies that interact with the boater in their community must thrive. Those businesses determine the boater’s experience and are the leading factor in the industry’s success. The Marine Retailers Association of the Americas works to create a strong and healthy boating industry by uniting those businesses, providing them with opportunities for improvement and growth, and representing them with a powerful voice.
