RV supplier enters the marine market

Dicor Corp., a longtime supplier for the RV industry, is entering the marine market.

Directed by its Seal Design affiliate, the expansion will bring a range of new components and aftermarket offerings to marine manufacturers and dealers, including a number of products Dicor recently introduced to the RV market, the company said.

Initial product offerings include sealants, deck hardware, new floor and furnishing options, and new motorized or manual Sun Screen roller shades.

“We knew when we released these products for RVs that many of them would cross over very well into marine applications,” Dicor president Gregg Fore said in a statement. “With the economy slowly reviving, marine manufacturers are looking to upgrade their offerings to bring back customers. We thought this would be an optimum time to help them do that. It’s the next step in a number of steps we’ve taken lately to grow our business.”

General manager Greg Kelly added, “We’ve been studying the marine market for some time and that is one of the first things the industry needs to know about us. We do our homework. We have high standards. All our products are proven and tested before going to market. And once they are sold we’re still around to help. We do everything we can to make sure manufacturers have a successful experience in installing the product, that dealers have a successful experience in selling it and that consumers have a better boating experience for using it.”
