One Step Retail

Our success with Dick’s Sporting Goods, Hamilton Marine, Defender Industries & others was built on many years’ experience with “One Step” Retail Chains going back to our days with E & B Marine, Boat/US and Boaters World. Our understanding of the needs of these sophisticated customers has become intuitive for us with so many years experience. Because we already represent many of the Industry’s most coveted product lines, we have a sure presence with these customers that affords us time with them to listen for opportunities for our newer suppliers who may be looking for opportunities.

There has been a resurgence in 2 step distribution, particularly with sales to Boatyards for the everyday maintenance and repair of boats.
