A decade at the helm of DeckHardware
Yeomans family celebrates 10 years in charge of local distribution business.
Local sailing hardware supplier, DeckHardware, is celebrating 10 years under the ownership of the Yeomans family, Phil, Robyn and Melissa.
Melissa Yeomans said that the decade since the family bought the company has been a “roller coaster of a journey”.
“It hasn't been an easy road especially in this industry over the last 10 years. The landscape has changed significantly.”
Having started with a handful of brands, the company is now the Australian distributor for a wide range of marine product suppliers including Allen, Billy Bung, Blue Performance, CC Marine, Forespar, Houdini, JDC, LIROS Rope, Man Ship Marine, Peter G's, PROtect Tapes, Sanol, Schaefer Marine, SpliceRight and Walder.
“We would like to thank our suppliers for their support, without them we would not be here now. The relationships we have had with Bill and Art at Forespar in particular have been invaluable. Their knowledge of not only Forespar but the industry is incredible and has been a huge help.
“The same can be said for Sven and Uwe at LIROS. Without these relationships we would not have learned as much as we have or been able to achieve what we have in these 10 years.”
The company recently launched a new website including new pricing and updated product catalogues from suppliers.
