American Boatbuilders Association signs deal with supplier

Gurit announced a multiyear frame supply agreement for core materials with the American Boatbuilders Association.

Bristol, R.I.-based Gurit USA, a subsidiary of the Gurit Group, announced that it was designated a preferred supplier of choice for the supply of G-PET, PVCell and Corecell SAN structural foam cores. Structural cores are a key materials category in boatbuilding.

The ABA is a major buying group for independent boatbuilders.

"ABA is pleased to reach an agreement with Gurit USA as the preferred supplier of choice for this wide range of core materials,” ABA president Jay Patton said in a statement. “We’ve chosen Gurit USA because they offer high-quality products, excellent technical support and valuable engineering resources. We look forward to enhancing our relationship with Gurit in the future."

“Gurit has a comprehensive range of core materials to fit any specification or manufacturing process,” Lance Hill, Gurit’s Americas regional sales director, said in a statement. “Our materials can be offered in sheet form and with a variety of cut patterns and finishes. We welcome this agreement with ABA to offer them tailored products to fit their members’ needs and processing choices.”
