Lewis Marine Supply acquires Jerry’s Marine


Lewis Marine Supply has acquired Jerry's Marine Service. Terms were not disclosed.

A statement from Fort Lauderdale-based Lewis Marine noted that Jerry’s was founded in 1971l It sells marine parts, engines and motor parts, and is an authorized dealer for Suzuki and Honda. It has locations in Fort Lauderdale and Charleston, S.C.

"Adding the Jerry's Marine Service business to the Lewis Marine Supply team is a foundational business opportunity,” said Lewis president Chelsea Beyer. “Fort Lauderdale is our home base, and we will be even stronger in our home market. The addition of Charleston is a first step in an expanded geographic reach to better service customers.”

Jerry's Marine owner Jon Lewis will continue to lead the sales team. "This acquisition gives us a great opportunity to offer more to our customers, but equally important is the cultural fit that our companies have,” said Lewis in the statement. “We are two traditionally family run businesses who have always valued personal service and strong product knowledge. We are excited to join forces and grow as an integrated team moving forward."

The business will operate as Lewis Marine Supply, while keeping the Jerry's Marine Service name for motors and engine related business. Jerry's Marine location in Fort Lauderdale will be absorbed into the main Lewis Marine facility. Jerry's Marine in Charleston will be rebranded to Lewis Marine Supply and continue to operate from that location.
