Barton Marine has partnered with DeckHardware Marine Solutions Australasia to distribute its range of deck gear across the Australasia region.
DeckHardware Marine Solutions is run by the Yeomans family with the company aiming to help promote sailing in the Australasia region.
“We first met the team at Barton a decade ago,” says Melissa Yeomans, “and now in 2020 we are excited by this new opportunity. We see Barton Marine complimenting the brands we currently distribute and enhancing the sport that is strong in our region.”
Suzanne Blaustone, Barton Marine CEO added: “There is great synergy between the Barton Team and the die-hard sailors in the Yeomans family. They know their market well and they teach us more everyday about the region and what their customers require of marine equipment.”
Barton’s history dates back to 1948 when founder Ron Barton used Tufnol to develop a range of lighter and stronger blocks before turning to plastic moulding in the 1960s.
In 2018 the full block range was redesigned to include new contemporary styling, lower profiles and higher load ratings.
The range is competitive for everyone from dinghy sailors to cruising yacht owners.
