Thomas H. Connolly & Sons - Manufacturer's Representatives

Paul Connolly

Having joined Thomas H Connolly & Sons in 1974 he began by calling on dealers to “pull through” sales for our Distributor Customers. In 1979 he moved to Maryland to cover Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Western Pennsylvania. Paul has had years of experience with OEM’s, 2 Step Distributors & Mass Merchants.

Paul’s the “hands on” member of the group, having restored 2 boats himself and guided his son Greg to restore another. Of course he used a whole lot of the products we represent to complete these projects.

Having developed our business with Boat/US and Boater’s World and now Dick’s Sporting Goods, he understands the requirements for supplying these large retail chains.

Paul has distinguished himself with his efforts at calling on dealers and boatyards with and without distributor salesmen.

Boat Trailers by Venture Trailers, utility trailers by Holmes Trailers and horse trailers by Dalton Enterprises are good examples of the diverse clientele he has cultivated to sell trailer parts.

Limited production builders like F&S Boatworks, Titan Yachts, TiffanyYachts, Judge Yachts and Weaver Boatworks are typical of this territory. They all build relatively few boats but each one is generally over 40’ in length. We supply them with fairing compounds, toilets, bilge pumps, electrical panels and more through our distributors. Each call is well worth the effort to make sure our distributors sell them our brand of products.
