T-H Marine Supplies Inc. and Magnetic Marine Products have entered into an agreement that grants T-H Marine exclusive global rights to manufacture and distribute the patented Gear Grabbar line of magnetic tackle management systems.
The Gear Grabbar Lure Hangar Kit was chosen as the best tackle management product in the New Product Showcase at the 2012 ICAST show.
“We are excited to announce our acquisition of the rights to these really cool magnetic lure holders,” said T-H Marine President and CEO, Jeff Huntley. “Those awards were not an accident, because these products are really fantastic for tackle management in any boat.”
The Gear Grabbar product line was invented by Michigan couple, Jennifer and John Gesik, who saw a need for anglers to keep tools, lures and other boating accessories organised while on the water.
“We look forward to bringing our expertise and distribution channels to these great products so that everyone can find them at their favourite fishing tackle and boating retailers,” Huntley added.
Jennifer Gesik said: “T-H Marine’s ability to fully expand distribution combined with their incredibly strong OEM presence makes John and I thrilled to partner with them.
“The Gear Grabbar magnetic tackle management system was invented to help people fish faster, safer and smarter,” she continued. “We want everyone who needs better tackle organisation in their boat to experience the benefits of these inventions. T-H Marine’s strength in the boating and fishing industries will take these products to a whole new level, enabling more fishermen than ever to experience the remarkable utility and power of magnetic tackle management.”
