Barton Marine, the UK-based supplier of sail and deck hardware, has appointed Robert Lindemann KG as its new distributor in Poland, with immediate effect.

Headquartered in Hamburg, Lindemann already supports Germany and territories throughout Eastern Europe for Barton Marine. With decades of experience within the marine and shipping industry, Lindemann has worked with Barton Marine for over 40 years.

Suzanne Blaustone, chief executive of Barton Marine, comments, “Poland is a growing market for Barton Marine, and with Lindemann’s local support in this market, we expect to see this expansion continue.

“Barton and Lindemann have a great working relationship with the same vision for the future to supply chandlers, OEMs and industrial accounts. We look forward to sharing in Lindemann’s strong presence at the Warsaw Wind and Water Show.”

Commenting on the partnership, Holger Penning, export manager for Robert Lindemann KG, says: “Widening Lindemann's distribution territory by putting the Polish marine market into our responsibility will push Barton's market position in Europe's most important boatbuilding market onto the same level we already realised in the German and Austrian market.”

Robert Lindemann KG will be exhibiting at the largest water sports and recreation exhibition in Poland, the Wind and Water Warsaw Boat Show. The event takes place from 16-19 March at the MT Polska Center.

The Wind and Water Warsaw Boat Show welcomes more than 400 exhibitors from Poland and abroad, as well as more than 30,000 visitors each year.
