Two of our best-known and respected marine companies have combined their experience and talents to provide an even better service to New Zealand’s marine industry.
Tenob Wholesale Marine Ltd has been in business in New Zealand for more than forty years. They are renowned for their innovation in product design, perhaps best exemplified by their highly-regarded rise and fall brackets that still set the benchmark more than 35 years after they were first designed.
Tenob sell a full range of marine chandlery products, a number of which they manufacture themselves. Items such as the Tenob Big Bung have been lauded by local boat manufacturers.
Marine Direct Ltd. was formed in 1997 after NZ Transport Supplies withdrew from the NZ marine market. Started by Danny Bassi and Darryll Hart after the pair met while working together at NZTS, they continued their association with the newly formed company until earlier this year when Bassi purchased Hart’s shares to become sole director.
Marine Direct Ltd is perhaps best known as an OEM distributor to the New Zealand boatbuilding industry. Their customers are the manufacturers of our best-known brands.
One of the greatest strengths of the new company will be the combined experience of staff and management. Stewart Mathiesen has extensive industry experience, the last 24 years as Managing Director of Tenob Wholesale Marine Ltd. Danny Bassi has nearly completed his second decade in the industry, while many others in both companies can also claim close to, or in excess of, 20 years industry experience.
The managerial duties for the new entity will be shared. Stewart Mathiesen will be General Manager, while Danny Bassi will be Managing Director, as well as continuing his role as technical advisor.
The new company will combine their resources and relocate to Marine Direct’s building in East Tamaki by early September 2014. Further information will follow announcing the new company name and branding.
