South Florida-based Aere Docking Solutions, manufacturer of inflatable fenders and Fenda-Sox marine covers, has partnered with Fjord, manufacturers of the Chafe-Pro line of chafe abrasion products, to distribute their products in market under the Fenda-Sox brand. These chafe protectors will now be in global distribution under the Chafe-Pro name.
“Aere Docking Solutions is experiencing significant growth, and as we streamline our focus toward our core products and unique marina solutions, we are very satisfied to have found the proper outlet for the chafe protectors we’ve manufactured under our Fenda-Sox name,” said Vicki Abernathy, COO of Aere Docking Solutions. “Rather than compete for shelf space with Chafe-Pro, we can now simply provide the product.”
Chafe-Pro has recently announced plans to expand its retail presence in the superyacht industry as well as recreational marine. Aere has expanded to include fire extinguishing systems. The companies plan to combine forces and support at industry shows moving forward.
