T-H Marine is celebrating its 45th year in business, with sales promotions, giveaways and more. “I was just a kid at the time, but I vividly remember how T-H Marine began in 1975,” CEO Jeff Huntley said in a statement. “The T and the H in ‘trim handle’ inspired the company name, as well as an ever-growing catalog of innovative products. My dad started with just some ideas to make his experiences better when he was boating, and we have continued to try to have that same focus as a company.”
