What is the heart behind Manning Marine?
Manning Marine is family owned and operated. We exist to build the best quality trailers we possibly can while still keeping the costs affordable.
When was Manning Marine established?
Manning Marine was established in 1984. Before growing into something much bigger and moving to our current location, we started where all typical hardworking American dreams start, in our garage at home.
How/why did Manning Marine come to be?
Manning Marine came to be after a family friend asked Ron to build him a trailer for his boat. This first trailer quickly gained attention and inquiries from others wanting to know where such a high quality trailer could be designed and built for their own boats. That same word of mouth continues to spread today from one happy customer to the next. That first trailer, now 31 years-old, is still in use today.
What is the best part about Manning Marine?
Manning Marine is family run and customer oriented. Our focus is on giving our customers the service and quality workmanship that we ourselves would hope to receive. We take pride in doing what it takes to give our customers the quality experience they deserve and ensuring they walk away happy even if it means we put in longer hours and adjustments.
Is there a favorite project you can remember?
We have had many memorable projects here at Manning Marine, from hydraulic trailers, to custom race boat trailers. The most recent interesting one we did was for a customer in Switzerland. We had to modify the trailer wiring and other components to be compatible with European standards.
