“We are very excited about the acquisition of Tigress and the opportunities it gives us to expand our rapidly growing marine markets as well as our manufacturing capabilities for the marine industry,” said Craig Lightle, Co-General Manager of EMS FL.

With facilities in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL area, Tigress manufacturers and distributes a diverse product line including rod holders, outriggers and accessories, kite fishing tackle, antenna mounts, lighting, chair accessories and precision engineered sports fishing equipment. This acquisition will allow EMS to increase our marine based product offerings as well as allowing us to enter some new retail markets.  Tigress products are currently sold in local West Marine and Bass Pro Shops as well as online and through additional marine distribution outlets.
