ABA Names Lumitec as Preferred Supplier of Choice.

Lumitec has been officially awarded the ABA Preferred Supplier of Choice award for Marine Underwater Lighting effective January 1, 2019 and extending to June 30, 2022.


In November of 2018 after a very competitive RFP process involving several leading marine lighting manufactures, the American Boatbuilders Association (ABA), a nineteen-member buying group, selected Lumitec as their primary preferred supplier of marine underwater lighting.


Lumitec, one of the world’s leading marine light manufactures supplies over 200+ OEM builders with marine lighting, 67 of those with underwater lighting and has shipped over 49,000 underwater light units in 2018 alone. A reputation of performance and quality with a strong working relationship and high customer satisfaction rating with a number of the ABA member companies were contributing factors in the final decision.

“This award validates Lumitec’s market-leading position in marine lighting and particularly in underwater lights. Our unique ability to light the entire boat, from underwater lights to spreader and bar lights to down and courtesy lights, and even navigation and anchor lights, all with 100% color-matching, allows boat builders to consolidate vendors and choose a single lighting supplier – saving money and improving product consistency.” Said Carmen Marchionni, Lumitec Global Sales Director


The American Boatbuilders Association is a coalition of 19 leading independent US boat manufacturers. ABA member companies have approximately 5,000 employees in the United States, with 15 facilities in 9 states. ABA companies produce more than 15% of all the boats above 16′ built in America.
