Following a 30-year career with Polyform — manufacturer of fenders, buoys, moorings and accessories — U.S. sales manager Tom Case will retire at the end of July. “Tom Case has a very methodical approach to sales and always puts the customer first,” the company said in a statement. “He is a devoted family man and will now get to spend more time with them, but his dedication to his Polyform family will always be remembered. His leadership and calming demeanor will be missed by many in the industry.”
