SureShade, the U.S. designer and manufacturer of patented retractable sunshade systems for the marine industry, reports global revenue sales for their patented marine sunshade systems grew 45 percent year-over-year.
OEMs added the company’s shade systems to 28 new boat models in 2017, bringing SureShade’s OEM portfolio to 116 boat models as a factory installed option or standard feature.
In addition to factory-install sales, the company’s aftermarket sales with dealers and private boaters contributed substantially to annual sales revenue in 2017.
SureShade’s sustained growth has been fueled by the rapid adoption by builders and private boat owners of their patented retractable sunshade systems as a marine accessory, the company reported.
“With the introduction of SureShade’s patented telescoping sunshade systems to the industry 10 years ago, we created and continue to dominate a new category in boat accessories,” said Dana Russikoff, SureShade co-founder. “As we continue our growth as global leader in marine sunshade systems, we remain focused on delivering products that meet the design and functionality needs of OEMs and, ultimately, create an even better experience for boaters.”
SureShade is projecting to continue or exceed their growth pace throughout 2018, the company reported.
