Profile

Marine Fenders International, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of high performance foam-filled marine fenders and buoys. Our staff, with more than 30 years experience in the engineering and manufacturing of fendering, buoyancy and urethane technologies, can provide you with the best products and services available to meet your specific requirements.
HIGHEST QUALITY MARINE FENDERS AND OFFSHORE BUOYS
Our state-of-the-art facilities are designed to efficiently provide you with the highest quality, most reliable and best-value marine products in the world. The quality of our products is reflected in the combination of using only the finest raw materials, manufacturing processes and the most innovative technologies in chemical and mechanical engineering. We are highly motivated to maintain and extend our lead in this part of the marine industry.
Marine Fenders International's research and development programs are continuously improving our product lines. Innovative product designs are constantly being developed to meet anticipated, future marine industrial needs. It is essential to maintain a competitive edge over other fender and buoy designs with regard to innovation, price and quality, affording you the best available protection for the money.
One of our main focuses is to provide our customers with solutions to the complex offshore markets. Our Ocean Guard and Ocean Cushion foam filled fenders provide a tough reliable fendering system that is not only high energy absorbing with relatively low reaction force but will not fail if punctured. Compared to the typical pneumatic fender, the same sized Ocean Guard and Ocean Cushion fenders absorb up to 40% more energy. Additionally, since the internal construction consists of a solid heat laminated foam core, there is no need to maintain air pressure, inflation or relief valves, as with pneumatic fenders.

FENDER SYSTEMS AND MARINE BUOYS
As an ever-expanding global economy dictates timely transfer of goods worldwide, Marine Fenders International's Ocean Guard™ and Ocean Cushion™ fendering systems effectively reduce wear and tear on vessels and wharves, reducing downtime required for maintenance and repairs. Over time, cost analyses have determined a substantial reduction of operating costs regarding the berthing of vessels.
As vessel operators increasingly request the use of foam-filled type fenders for the protection of their assets, port authorities are also realizing the benefits of using Marine Fenders International's Ocean Guard™ and Ocean Cushion™ foam-filled fenders.
