Glendinning Marks 50th Anniversary


Glendinning Products is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The Conway, S.C.-based company was founded with the sale of its first automatic synchronizer in 1972, Glendinning said in a statement.

Founder Hylands “Glen” Glendinning’s mantra was, “Build quality marine products which provide boating pleasure through automation and always take care of the customer.” Sons John and Paul Glendinning remain forces behind Glendinning Products.

Today, the company specializes in shore power, hose management, electronic controls and control cables.

John Glendinning called the family company an “authentic American Dream success story,” noting that it has grown and remains a “well-regarded supplier of marine products.”
