Berkshire Hathaway’s Forest River Marine, a division of Forest River, Inc., has become a platinum member of the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas.
The MRAA’s mission is to be the single voice of marine retailers, providing member services that include: fostering and uniting relationships; raising awareness and professionalism; protecting common interests and strengthening all members.
The association is comprised of boat dealers, marine parts and accessories vendors, marina operators, boatyards, marine service providers, and all those whose livelihood is affected by the marine industry.
“We believe in the importance of a strong and effective dealer body,” said Tom McCuddy, Forest River Marine general manager. “We are proud to have a strong network of dealers, and we believe that supporting the work of our industry’s dealer association is an important contributor to the overall health of our industry and our boating community.”
Forest River Marine is a leading manufacturer of pontoon boats under the Berkshire, South Bay, and Trifecta brands.
“The Forest River team has shown a great desire to strengthen its dealer network in support of their customers,” said MRAA President Matt Gruhn. “From their participation at our annual conference all the way through to their communications with the Forest River dealer network about programs and opportunities that our team here at MRAA has to offer them, they continue to invest in and lead the way with dealer development.”
