Hutchings Marine Products Ltd., Since 1972.
Ralph and Eleanor Hutchings, the founders of Hutchings Marine Products Ltd. began business in 1972
making mooring lines in their basement located in Port Carling, Ontario. Later they moved operations
to Armstrong Street, in Bracebridge and hired Scott Crichton. At that time, Scott and Ralph delivered
marine products from cube vans. Later Scott became a partner with Ralph.
Ralph retired in 1995, offering an opportunity for Judy Semple, who came on board in 1991, to become
a partner with Scott; and then Chris Kohler joined us in 1996 as our Sales Manager. He has since retired in 2013.
August 2004, Hutchings moved to a new building in Gravenhurst, where in 2006 it was expanded further into
our present 11,000 square foot building.
We grew our sales force in 2008 by hiring Jack Napier for South Western Ontario.
Having grown from only 3 employees to 15 full time staff, the Hutchings team works very hard at providing
the right products, processing the orders, and shipping them out, in most cases, all in the same day.
The original 10 page catalog is now over 750 pages with more than 10,000 items offering you a wide range of products to choose from.
We take pride in giving you quality products, customer service beyond all others and the assurance that your interest is our number one priority.
Orders are taken 24/7 online and fax; or you can contact us by phone during regular office hours. Personal delivery runs are provided during your
peak season and for our special programs. Warranty issues are settled quickly and efficiently.
Also look for our Monthly Sales Flyers, Fall Haul Out and the Booking Program to qualify for free freight thru the season.
We look forward to working with you.
