The American Boatbuilders Association renewed its contract with Schmitt & Ongaro Marine Products for another three years.

The company has been the exclusive ABA supplier of choice for marine stainless-steel steering wheels since 1999.

Schmitt & Ongaro provides excellent service and high-quality products at competitive pricing to our members,” ABA president Jay Patton said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing our relationship.”

Since 1992 the association, through its collective buying power, has obtained materials at the lowest possible cost for its boatbuilder members. ABA boatbuilders produce more than 15 percent of all U.S.-built boats over 16 feet, the association said.
