If you can’t find what you’re looking for in the Caribbean, look in Florida. This fall, Fort Lauderdale, FL-headquartered global marine distributor, Lewis Marine Supply, acquired Jerry’s Marine Service. Jerry’s, a 1971-founded family-owned business with locations in Fort Lauderdale and Charleston, SC, sells marine parts, engines and motor parts and is an authorized dealer for Suzuki and Honda.
“We are very excited about the addition of the Jerry’s Marine team, products and knowledge to Lewis Marine,” says Lewis Marine president, Chelsea Beyer. “Combined, we will represent over 350 manufacturers, 30,000 products, and have a much larger team to help our customers get what they need, when they need it, and where they need it. To do this, we have an 85,000-square-foot facility in Fort Lauderdale. We also have a dedicated international team that frequently travels to the Caribbean or can be reached directly at 877-767-1250. Finally, check out our new website at Lewismarine.com. We are in the process of updating to integrate all our new products for easy online ordering.”
