Engineered Marine Coatings said boatbuilders, boatyards and boat owners are now able to purchase the company’s Quantum product line from Jamestown Distributors.

“We knew we found the right distributor when were given the time to train every employee at JD,” Engineered Marine Coatings co-founder Jon Boswell said in a statement. “Everyone has used the product and asked all the right questions. We feel confident they will continue the customer service standard we have worked hard to create.”

South Carolina-based Engineered Marine Coatings said Jamestown Distributors, of Bristol, R.I., has a 40,000-square-foot warehouse and more than 20,000 stocking SKUs, or stock-keeping units. The company’s sales department includes a 7,000-square-foot store and showroom, a 10-person customer service and technical sales call center and two outside sales reps who service Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Technical data, FAQs, how-tos and products related to the Quantum line are available at www.jamestowndistributors.com. Customers can pick up product at Jamestown’s showroom. Engineered Marine Coatings said all of its paints and coatings will be in stock and shipped the next day to customers in New England and New York.
