Independent Boat Builders Inc. named the Pacer Group its preferred vendor for wire, cable and battery cable assemblies.

"IBBI will bring us good potential for growth in the marine segment of our business," Pacer sales manager Steve O'Dea said in a statement. "This will open many doors for Pacer by creating new, and expanding existing, professional relationships."

"I think that Pacer Group is a really good company to work with. I visited their Sarasota, Fla., facility and I was very pleased with what I saw," IBBI president Tom Broy said in a statement. "They have great control over their manufacturing facility, which is one of the reasons we decided to go with them. IBBI and Pacer Group have signed a three-year contract and we are looking forward to providing as much business as possible for Pacer."
