Win-Tron Electronics signs deal with British company

New Jersey-based wholesale marine electronics and supplies vendor Win-Tron Electronics said it was named a key distributor for the United Kingdom’s Bluefin LED, a designer and manufacturer of premium underwater LED lights for boats, yachts, docks and marinas.

”Our reselling dealers have grown to be accustomed to finding the best quality products with state-of-the-art technological advances at Win-Tron. Our dealers demand the best from Win-Tron and I am confident the addition of Bluefin to our vast offering is going to be a perfect fit for us,” Win-Tron president Eddie Winder said in a statement.

“We are delighted to have such a giant representing our products,” Bluefin LED CEO Simon Steadman said. “Win-Tron Electronics is a formidable, respected force in the industry and we are looking forward to working with them and growing our brand throughout the USA.”

Winder said in July that his company was soon expecting inventory of the complete line of Bluefin LED products — Piranha, Hammerhead, Stingray and Great White ranges.

“We are actively promoting these new and exciting products to our national base of dealers. We certainly expect these products to be embraced by boaters and marina owners seeking affordable, cost-effective, long-lasting and environmentally friendly lighting solutions," he said.
