MAGICEZY, Australian manufacturer of new 9-Second Chip Fix, Hairline Fix and Mega Fusion, has signed on with Newport, Rhode Island-based marine products distributor AB Marine to bring its innovative, award-winning gelcoat repair products to the North American boating market.
“We’re very excited about working with AB Marine,” said MagicEzy CEO Warwick Lindsay.
“They have an excellent reputation in the industry for representing the finest marine products, and are also known for offering customers the newest breakthrough technologies. Our MagicEzy product line takes one of boat ownership’s most difficult tasks — fixing chips, dents, scratches and stress cracks — and makes it easy for anyone to achieve professional results. Customer response across Australia has been
fantastic, and we’re confident the same will happen across North America as boaters learn about our products and see them in their favorite stores,” said Lindsay.
MagicEzy 9-Second Chip Fix is a nano filler that structurally fixes and colors chips, scratches, nicks and gouges in fiberglass boats in seconds — without harsh fumes or the need for mixing two-part formulas. MagicEzy Hairline Fix is a nano sealant and binder developed to seal and color fine scratches and stress cracks in one application. Hairline Fix was recently recognized by US-based marine trade journal Boating Industry as one of the Top Products for 2014. A third product, MagicEzy Mega Fusion Primer Sealant allows both of these surface repair products to be used on plastic, wood and aluminum surfaces, for easy, reliable repair jobs on PWCs, aluminum boats, kayaks or canoes.
AB Marine has a 20-year track record of bringing high-quality marine products to the marine industry, as well as American boaters. The company was founded by New Zealanders Steve Armitage and Chris Bouzaid, whose last initials form the basis for the name AB Marine. Its combined backgrounds in the marine industry and global sailing experience have helped AB Marine build a loyal following in the sailing industry. This business focus is an ideal match for MagicEzy products, given the reputation sailors have for keeping their vessels in Bristol condition. In addition to its distributorship, AB Marine also operates a retail store in Rhode Island, along with a website dedicated to connecting boaters nationwide with the finest available products and accessories.
“We immediately recognised that MagicEzy products deliver an innovative solution for a problem that all boaters face,” said AB Marine co-founder Steve Armitage.
“MagicEzy makes fixing the endless chips, dings and scratches that come with everyday boat use easy for everyone, which is why we expect a strong response from our customers. When you have a product that’s simple to use, effective, affordable, and addresses an important need in the market — that’s a sure winner,” said Armitage.
