New World Marine offers new warranty


New World Marine Inc., manufacturer of the Fendergrip push-button fender adjuster and storage system, will provide a new limited lifetime warranty on its product, the company announced.

The offer coincides with the company’s production milestone of 500,000 units.

“In this challenging economy the time was right to offer our customers even more value for the dollar. Our limited lifetime warranty does just that by giving Fendergrip owners the peace of mind that as long as they own a Fendergrip we will stand behind it,” company president Peter Cook said in a statement.

Founded in 1992, New World Marine is a manufacturer and distributor of marine accessories.
