Original Equipment Manufacturers

Working with Global Boat Brands


The Wilks fendering range is here to help OEMs meet the needs of customers. It’s something we have been doing for decades.

The Wilks brand was established in 1973 and is currently working with many leading boat brands such as Parker and Princess. Wilks fendering and rub rails are frequently developed in collaboration with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). A practice that can start from the inception of a product to development all the way through to manufacturing.
