Dealers and Distributors

Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from 3M Marine, Delta "T" Systems and Land 'N' Sea Distributing.

3M Marine announced that its products are now available to marine aftermarket distributors through Victory Marine & Industrial in both broken and full-case quantities.

The mission of Victory is to provide improved inventory management solutions to the aftermarket distributor network that is already carrying the 3M Marine line of products, the company said.

Victory is a wholly owned subsidiary of National Oak, a nationwide warehouse-distribution provider. The separate entity was established to ensure that the focus on the marine aftermarket is not blended with the other distribution markets that National Oak may serve.

"3M has partnered with Victory to enhance service to distributors and end-customers alike with improved efficiencies throughout the channel," 3M marine aftermarket marketing manager Robert Raub said in a statement. "3M Marine is pleased to be one of the product lines offered through Victory to the marine aftermarket distributors."

Specializing in mobile marine electrical dockside service, Anchor Marine Electric provides troubleshooting, systems design, installation, refits, extensions, repowers, new construction and project management.

Land 'N' Sea Distributing now offers its customers oil-spill containment and cleanup products from Centek Industries.

Sheen Devil, Terraguard, Versimat and the Rapid Response Containment Boom are infused with patented MyCelx, which binds on contact with hydrocarbon pollution and does not absorb water.

All are suitable for use in cleanup efforts in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as fuel spills at marinas and fuel docks, the company said.
