American Boatbuilders Association Names Imtra Supplier of Choice for Lighting


Marine product manufacturer and importer, Imtra, has been selected by the American Boatbuilders Association (ABA) as a Supplier of Choice for lighting products.

"We are thrilled to have been selected as a Supplier of Choice for lighting by the ABA,' said Eric Braitmayer, President and CEO, IMTRA. "We have worked hard to develop the best-in-class range of LED lights for the marine industry. Being chosen as Supplier of Choice validates our decisions to put quality and service first.'

"We are excited to expand our relationship with Imtra as a key supplier to ABA members,' said Jay Patton, President of ABA. "Our members put a high value on service and superior performance when creating their boats. Imtra shares that commitment to provide the very best products and services, which makes them a perfect partner for the ABA.'

For the past 60 years, Imtra has served as a supplier to builders, repair yards, retailers and naval architects, as well as private yacht and vessel owners. In addition to its line of specialty marine products, the company designs and manufactures marine LED lighting for numerous applications.

Since 1992, the ABA's aim has been to obtain the highest quality materials at the lowest possible cost, while leveraging purchasing power. This alliance brings the united voice of a group of independent boat builders with annual boat sales over US $1 billion and material purchases of approximately US $600 million. The savings from pooled purchasing and technical services are said to reduce transaction costs, resulting in better pricing for the boat buyer while driving increased sales and product turns for manufacturers and suppliers.
