The Independent Boat Builders Inc. awarded ASA Electronics a four-year contract extension as an IBBI preferred supplier of audio systems.

ASA has been a supplier of choice for the IBBI since 2013. IBBI has 21 members in the United States and Canada.

“We are very pleased to continue our relationship with ASA Electronics,” IBBI president Tom Broy said in a statement. “After only two years, ASA was selected as our Supplier of the Year by the membership. We feel the Polk Audio, Marine Audio and Jensen brands are a good fit for our members.”

ASA said it has been designing, engineering and testing its marine products for more than 35 years to ensure their survival in the challenging conditions on the water. ASA’s premium line includes stereos, speakers, subwoofers and other accessories built to withstand the inclement elements found in a marine environment.

“We are honored the IBBI has chosen to partner with ASA for another four years for their audio systems,” ASA Marine national sales manager Matt Wood said. “We value this relationship with boatbuilders who are so well known in our industry for their quality and look forward to supporting them with the products and support they deserve.”
