Quickline adds Fort Lauderdale distribution center


Marine gear importer and distributor Quickline said it will stock product at and ship product from its new distribution center in Fort Lauderdale.

The opening of this facility brings Quickline’s inventory, such as the Ultra Anchor and Ultra Flip Swivel, to customers and resellers in southern Florida and the entire East Coast.

“We have seen a tremendous increase in demand for our products over the last few years and, as a result the need for expanded presence to ensure the highest-quality support for our customers,” Quickline president Randy Boelsems said in a statement. “With the opening of our new Fort Lauderdale distribution center, we are able to reduce turnaround time and continue to provide the renowned service our customers have always relied on –- throughout North America.”

“Some manufacturers change their anchors in an attempt to realize the performance of the Ultra Anchor,” Boelsems added. “The tried and true Ultra Anchor has not required any design changes because it works. There is no other anchor on the market that comes close to its performance and quality.”
