Lenco Marine, a US manufacturer of electric trim tabs, trolling motors and hatch lifts, has received the Independent Boat Builders Incorporated (IBBI) Supplier of the Year recognition award for the third consecutive year. The prize was announced at the recent IBBI meeting in St. Louis, Missouri, in the US.

Richard DeVito, president of Lenco Marine, Inc. comments: “This award is not one to be taken lightly. The fact that the top boatbuilders in the country voted on such things as: Product Quality, Delivery, Customer Service, Warranty/Returns, Accurate Invoicing and Technical Service means this is an all-encompassing award. The IBBI is the #1 buying group in the country and we are among a group of extraordinary peer suppliers which makes this a much esteemed honour.”

IBBI, a purchasing co-operative based in the US, has been in business for 25 years, and was originally founded by a group of independent, recreational boatbuilders to negotiate with suppliers on their behalf.  Today, IBBI has 21 members in multiple locations.
