The Rocna Anchors lifetime warranty has been expanded to include bending or deformation, in addition to breakage, in a new warranty policy. It applies to the lifetime of the original purchaser when the anchor is sized appropriately for the boat, using Rocna's sizing recommendations.
"Many companies warranty against breakage, but we're so confident in Rocna's rugged design that we protect against manufacturing defects and bending. An anchor is vital safety equipment, and we give our customers peace of mind their Rocna will perform as promised," said John Mitchell, president of Canada Metal (Pacific) Ltd. The company recently acquired the Rocna manufacturing license.
Canada Metal (Pacific) has also expanded its successful relationship with independent rep firm Derema Group, appointing them to manage US sales and distribution of Rocna Anchors. Derema Group covers the marine and outdoor markets nationwide, and has managed Canada Metal (Pacific)'s marine aftermarket sales in the US for more than five years. Canada Metal (Pacific) is a world-leading producer of CMP chain, Martyr marine anodes, Octopus marine autopilot drive systems and Intellisteer remote steering systems.
Canada Metal Pacific of Vancouver has acquired New Zealand-based Rocna® Anchors. John Mitchell, president of Canada Metal Pacific, made the announcement.
The Rocna manufacturing license has been re-assigned to Canada Metal Pacific. Key Rocna personnel are being retained to assist with the transition and support ongoing activities.
“We have been searching for a line of anchors and anchoring products to complement our CMP™ anchor chain,” stated Mitchell, “and are very excited to bring Rocna Anchors into the fold. Their superior performance fits well with our focus on innovation and quality products.”
