Marine vinyl manufacturer G&T Industries was awarded a contract as a preferred supplier for Independent Boat Builders Inc.

G&T Industries has a longstanding relationship with IBBI, a purchasing cooperative consisting of builders who have joined together for competitive pricing on boatbuilding products and materials.

“We have been doing business with G&T since 1989 as one of our first approved suppliers,” said Tom Broy, IBBI president, in a statement. “Even back then they were a forward-thinking company that embraced buying groups. Our purchasing committee felt confident entering into this long-term relationship to benefit our members.”

Mark Lunau, G&T executive vice president of sales, said his company is working to grow its offerings to IBBI and increase its scope to reflect the full range of G&T’s products and services. The contract will be served from G&T’s new corporate headquarters in Byron Center, Mich., as well as from the company’s Maryville, Tenn., location.
