Tallon Marine, Wanaka, New Zealand, the manufacturer of an integrated system called the Tallon System, has appointed Paynes Marine Group as the Canadian distributor for its series of receiver platforms and four ranges of interchangeable accessories including Fishing & Diving, Entertaining, Attaching and Power.
“Since we set up our distribution hub in the United States, we believed that Canada was a natural progression on that front,” explains Duncan Good, general manager of Tallon Marine. “We were looking for a Canadian distributor with national market penetration and the infrastructure to supply both dealers and OEMs. Paynes Marine Group is an ideal partner with coast-to-coast presence.”
Paynes Marine Group is based in Victoria, BC, and offers more than 34,000 brand-name marine equipment products to dealers, manufacturers, shipyards and government agencies.
“When we saw Tallon Marine at MAATS (Marine Accessories Aftermarket Accessories Trade Show that was held in Las Vegas in July), we were impressed with the innovative concept and design,” said Grant Kuebler, president of Paynes Marine Group. “We're always on the lookout for innovative products to bring to our customers and the decision to represent Tallon Marine in Canada was an easy one. The Tallon System was also well received at our recent annual Marine Show.”
