Bostik Findley, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of adhesives, sealants and lubricants, has enlisted Land 'N' Sea Corporation, a full-service wholesale distributor serving 60-percent of the marine dealer network in North America, to stock and sell Bostik® brand products for the marine aftermarket.

Based in Pompano Beach, Fla., Land 'N' Sea Corporation, part of the Brunswick Boat Group, is the largest distributor of marine parts and accessories in North America and handles more than 45,000 different boat and engine parts from 12 warehouse distribution centers.

Their experience with serving the aftermarket dealer and independent repair shop customers is expected to substantially advance Bostik Findley's business in the marine sector. Land 'N' Sea will offer a wide variety of Bostik products, including 960 SR Marine Sealant, available in a special range of colors customized for Sea Ray® brand boats.

Tom Schuessler, chief operating officer for Land 'N' Sea, says the company places great emphasis on service and delivery. "More than 10,000 independent dealers and repair shops trust and rely on us for our ability to rapidly deliver quality products. Adding Bostik to our line of available products corresponds with our goals to provide value-added service and further grow our business."

According to Richard D'Autilio, director of marketing and sales of the Bostik Findley Construction & Distribution Division, having Land 'N' Sea as a distributor helps Bostik Findley broaden its positions in the marine and watercraft markets. "With the efforts of our marine representative, Gulf Atlantic Marketing, Inc., and now the Bostik Findley: Land 'N' Sea Appointed Distributor addition of the Land 'N' Sea distribution network, our marine sector business has been widely expanded and complements our well-established standing in the construction, industrial and MRO markets," states D' Autilio. Bostik Findley is broadly recognized for its advances in one-part urethane sealant technology and anti-seize protection.

The company's extensive line of specially engineered sealants and adhesives are innovative solutions to many challenging marine applications above and below the waterline.

Bostik Findley, Inc. is a unit of Total SA, a $93-billion multinational company with extensive worldwide interests in oil exploration, petroleum refining and the formulation of specialty chemicals.
