Why Wilks

Why Wilks

We have been supplying the marine industry with boat and pontoon fendering for over 40 years.

Since starting out in business we have worked closely with the global marine industry by directly supplying boat builders, pontoon manufacturers, chandlers, and retail customers with their marine fendering requirements.

This has seen us grow steadily in size and we are now one of the world's leading suppliers of marine profiles with a distribution network that has a presence in over 40 countries worldwide.


Looking a little closer at what we do, take a moment to consider the facts:


All of our REACH compliant materials are sourced within the UK and all recycled materials are recovered in-house.

How's that for simplicity?

In addition we actively follow and maintain our Green Policy which has seen working with local government schemes and investing in the latest energy saving technologies.

From energy efficient lights and motors to rain water harvesting linked to the cooling baths in our production lines, we are always on the lookout for the next energy saving step we can make.


At our premises we hold a wide range of stock which allows us to meet customer demand with as short lead times as possible.

As manufacturers we can also tailor profiles to your specific project needs, and with surprisingly low minimum orders too.

Working closely over new designs and prototypes? We're here for you.

Short delivery times? Not a problem.


We understand our business and take the time to understand our customers requirements in order to help them to achieve their goals - on time, on budget, and with support throughout.


We have been supplying the leading boat builders with their profiles since 1973.

There's a wealth of experience on our side for you to use to your advantage.

... we look forward to working with you!
