• American Boatbuilders Association Selects Attwood Fuel Systems

    LOWELL, MICH. – The American Boatbuilders Association recently selected Attwood Fuel Systems as the preferred supplier of EPA-certified fuel systems.

    The American Boatbuilders Association joins the United Marine Manufacturers Association (UMMA) and Independent Boat Builders, Inc. (IBBI) and the industry’s leading independent boatbuilders in selecting Attwood to ensure member builders meet the EPA emissions control requirements for marine fuel systems.

    “Attwood Fuel Systems were selected as the preferred solution based on exclusive safety features, extensive component and system validation, ease of implementation and industry-leading implementation support and value,” said Jay Patton, president of ABA.

    “Being selected as the solution for all of the major buying groups, as well as the leading independent builders, helps solidify our position as a leader in the marketplace, “said Chris Drees, president of Attwood. “Builders have already implemented thousands of EPA-compliant systems and have experienced firsthand Attwood’s commitment to delivering the safest, easiest to implement and most cost-effective solutions possible.”

    Since 1992, the American Boatbuilders Association, through its collective buying power, has obtained materials at the lowest possible cost for its boatbuilder members. ABA boatbuilders produce more than 15 percent of all U.S.-built boats more than 16 feet in length, the association said.

    Attwood is a supplier of fuel systems, navigational lighting, pumps and blowers, electrical products, gas springs, trailer components, boat seating, boat covers and bimini tops.
