The Fossati Group, presently the US and Caribbean distributor of Highfield and Aruba inflatable boats, said Monday that it will transfer the distribution of both lines to Highfield Marine USA, the U.S. operating arm of Weihai Hifei Marine Co., Ltd.
Headquartered in Weihai, China, Hifei Marine manufactures Highfield and Aruba rigid and soft hull inflatable boats.
Highfield Marine USA will maintain operations at The Fossati Group offices and warehouse in Homestead, Fla. During the transition, Domenico Fossati, CEO of The Fossati Group, will collaborate with Highfield Marine and its U.S. representative, Florian Loury.
“We felt like now was a good time to make this move,” said Fossati. “The financial resources of Highfield Marine USA will increase available inventory and support additional marketing programs. We will work together with our dealers to grow the business at an accelerated pace, benefiting everyone involved.”
