Engineered Marine Coatings added Fiberglass Coatings as the company’s distributor for the Southeast and Caribbean regions.

Engineered Marine Coatings CEO and co-founder Jon Boswell announced that Fiberglass Coatings of St. Petersburg and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., were appointed the company’s distributor for the Southeast and Caribbean regions.

Boswell cited, “their reputation, sales staff and their overall ability to meet the expectations of yards, OEMs, and consumers in the Southeast and Caribbean are the primary reasons that they were selected.”

“In the competitive world of 2-part marine paint, we wanted a coatings product that took advantage of today’s technology and was cost effective for our customers,” Fiberglass Coatings owner Bill Higman said in a statement. “It has been my experience that price and performance in any arena has always worked. Quantum gives us that edge in the marine market place.”
