Fort Lauderdale, FL, July 25, 2013 --( AERÉ Docking Solutions, a world leader in the inflatable fender and mooring products industry for more than 15 years has joined forces with Italy’s premier marine service and supply company, Mansueto Marine, to provide exclusive distributor-style stocking service to customers throughout Italy and the European Union.

“We’ve been working with Mansueto as a dealer for the past six years and have had great experiences with them with regards to their level of service and support,” said Gary Abernathy, AERÉ Docking Solutions President. “The transition [of Mansueto] to Distributor was a natural progression and is a win-win for all of us—especially the customers,” he continued. “A good majority of our products will now be available much more quickly to our European customers and they will be backed up with quality customer service provided by Mansueto.”

“The creation of this new distribution center at Mansueto’s main facility in San Remo, Italy, will now enable our European customers, yacht manufacturers and other dealers to receive their products more quickly and with better pricing, thanks to bulk shipping of AERÉ Products from the U.S. In addition, Mansueto will also be handling Italian warranty repairs on existing products—further enhancing AERÉ’s strong commitment to customer service.
