EP Barrus to exclusively represent the Blue Gee product line in Britain
EP Barrus has been made an exclusive distributor for Blue Gee Supplies in the UK. The move comes not long after the British engine importer and distributor entered the marine chandlery market.
Blue Gee is a UK manufacturer of materials for boat repair and construction. With both polyester and epoxy products in kit and bulk formats, plus a selection of over 80 pigment options, the company claims to offer the most comprehensive range available to the marine retailer.
“The agreement with Blue Gee to become their exclusive distributor for the UK further strengthens our growing product offering for the marine aftermarket,” says Ben Allen, general manager of the Marine Leisure Division at EP Barrus Ltd.
Blue Gee products are now exclusively available through Barrus, utilising its partnership with SailForce to streamline the supply chain. Housed in a warehouse facility of over 2 million cubic feet, stock will be readily available and delivered next day on orders placed before 3pm.
Barrus’s electronic ordering portal, DIAL 247, offers live information on stock availability, order entry, back order status and order history to give dealers full control over their inventory and products on display.
Tom Farrugia, chairman and CEO of Blue Gee, says: “We are over the moon to become a part of the Barrus family and equally them to become a part of ours. Blue Gee’s brand and service of 35 years are only going to strengthen with this new, stronger distribution relationship with Barrus.”
Blue Gee joins Talamex, Besto, G-Nautics, Stazo and Barton in the Barrus Marine Equipment range and will be available to order from 1 April 2019.
