Martin Flory Group adds North Carolina client


Florida Marine Tanks of Henderson, N.C., signed on with the Martin Flory Group, which will now manage publicity for the company in the United States and Canada for the consumer and trade markets.

A family-owned company that was founded in 1974, Florida Marine Tanks specializes in custom-made fuel, water, oil and holding tanks that meet or exceed American Boat and Yacht Council and National Marine Manufacturers Association standards.

Recently, the company was awarded U.S. patents for two of its fuel tanks that comply with EPA regulations on diurnal emissions. Its products have been installed on many high-quality boats, such as Boston Whaler, Chaparral-Robalo, Grady-White, Hatteras, Regal Marine, Sea Ray and Tiara.

"We're excited to be working with Florida Marine Tanks," Martin Flory Group president Laura Martin said in a statement. "They're dedicated to providing their customers with superior engineering, the highest-quality construction and unsurpassed customer service."
