Union Chandlery will return to the Irish Skipper Expo this year to showcase their expanding product range to both new and existing customers.

With a large customer-base in Ireland both instore and online, Union Chandlery has attracted many suppliers worldwide in recent times. The company have also moved premises to Doughcloyne Ind Est in Cork, now avoiding the congested city centre and making it easier for customers to park up and browse instore.

Among the vast range of products available at Union Chandlery are the NAVIDURIN® Waterlocks and Waterstrainers by VETUS,

NAVIDURIN® is used in recreational and in commercial vessels, with the blend delivering performance comparable to and exceeding high performance FRP, including good strength and durability. So whether it’s an exhaust for a small fishing boat or a cooling water strainer for a commercial vessel – NAVIDURIN® is up to the challenge.

Continuously seeking new products to improve the efficiency of the commercial fishing industry, Union Chandlery have also introduced a revolutionary range of composite marine fittings from Trudesign.
