Caframo Takes on New U.S. Distributor

Caframo Limited, Wiarton, ON, a manufacturer of marine fans, cabin heaters and accessories, has recently appointed Lewis Marine Supply, Fort Lauderdale, FL, as a distributor to boat builders and marine dealers along the east coast of the United States – from Maine to Florida.

“We have always been strong on the retail side in the United States and we sell a lot of our products through West Marine,” said Elliot Good, sales and marketing manager for Caframo Limited. “We do a lot of OEM-direct, however we were lacking a good distributor on the east coast, particularly one that can reach down into the Florida area and the Carolinas.”

Lewis Marine Supply, which stocks more than 25,000 items, offers services to boat builders and marine dealers from locations in Rockland, ME, Greenport, NY, Edenton, NC, Cocoa, FL, Stuart, FL and Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Caframo 12 and 24-volt fans are designed for marine use with select models featuring the company's patented Finger-Safe Blade, which according to the company, does not require a protective grill and has a shock-absorbing leading edge that flexes when it is stopped. These blades are designed to push air efficiently and quietly throughout the cabin.
