Repco Australia, the nationwide supplier and servicer of automotive parts and equipment, is partnering as a Bronze Sponsor of the Marina Industries Association (MIA).

Repco says the partnership will help it establish its brand as a trusted supplier in the marine industry.

Across its 420-plus stores and distribution centres in Australia and New Zealand, Repco provides customers with total marine workshop solutions. Its range includes parts, consumables, workshop tooling and equipment, and tailored solutions to suit the needs of marinas around the country.

“It’s great to see Repco Australia focusing on the marine industry,” says MIA CEO, Suzanne Davies. “Many MIA members have been purchasing from Repco over the years and have been very impressed by the wide-ranging products and the knowledge and guidance provided by the staff.”

Repco Australia’s commitment to the marina industry is further highlighted by the exclusive benefits that MIA members will receive from Repco Australia. These include a member discount card, access to its online ordering portal and catalogues, access to supplier training sessions, VIP invites to Repco Australia trade events, and exclusive product offers.

“I am delighted for Repco Australia to be joining forces with MIA as a Bronze Sponsor,” says Mark Kolpin, Repco Australia’s national commercial manager. “The marina and marine industry have always played a huge part in the lives of many Australians and continues to be that way thanks to much of the hard work done by the MIA.

“At Repco Australia, we believe that to help maintain the health of the marina industry, it is important for us to provide support to MIA members in their many endeavours through our extensive MIA membership benefits and by combining Repco’s extensive network with the largest aftermarket sales field force.”

“Industry sponsorship is a great way for suppliers to remain ‘top of mind’ and to ensure exposure in our growing industry,” continues Davies. “The investment in MIA sponsorship by Repco Australia is greatly appreciated but also is a smart business move. In a recent survey of members, it was reported that nearly 64 per cent of members will actively consider sponsors when making purchasing and acquisition decisions.”

The MIA represents the interests of club, recreational and commercial marinas, boatyards and industry suppliers in Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region. Working closely with other marina associations around the world, the MIA says it supports the development of sustainable marina industries through the delivery of strong leadership, industry guidance, education, accreditation and research.
