Our Marine customers span all the way from North Sea workboats to luxury leisure yachts. Each of these relies on our ability to meet all of their specific product and solution requirements while providing an outstanding service through our bow to stern supply chain.
We work closely with marine component manufacturers as well as yacht
and boat builders with whom we have implemented many integrated supply
and procurement services for multi-site operations.
This makes the timely and cost-controlled supply of engineering
consumables, MRO products, PPE and specialist tool
kits an important factor for ensuring continued productivity on-site.

Fox's Marina & Boatyard
Established in 1927, Fox’s Marina & boatyard is located on the River Orwell in Ipswich, who provide on-site repair, refit and maintenance facilities and the largest chandlery on the east coast.
When we first met Fox’s they were using a competing supplier for their consumable items, we started off small supplying drill bits and saw blades, providing them one single point of contact for all of their requirements and sourced anything they required using our extensive supplier network.
Fox’s shortly switched to Monks & Crane from the competing supplier because we could supply all of the items they required on a consignment stock basis. This inevitably helped drive consumable spend down especially on high-value items whilst providing one source for all invoicing.
“Particularly in the current challenging business environment having a reliable, supportive and efficient supplier is more important than ever. Here at Foxs Marina and Boatyard, we have found just such a supplier in Monks and Crane.
Prior to setting up our consignment stock agreement we had to invest our management resource into administering numerous small suppliers. This inevitably led to wasted effort and we often ran out of stock. Since moving to Monks and Crane these issues are history and we have discovered other benefits in having a supplier who knows our business intimately. Their prices are competitive but it is the support, efficiency and service that make this such an attractive solution.”
