IMTRA Lighting


IMTRA was recently selected by the American Boatbuilders Association (ABA) as a Supplier of Choice for lighting products.

With a focus on service and product development, IMTRA supports its customers by offering the highest quality marine products. Throughout the last 60 years, IMTRA has become known as the most reliable supplier to builders, repair yards, retailers and naval architects, as well as private yacht and vessel owners. In addition to its full line of specialty products, IMTRA designs and manufactures marine LED lighting for every application. Engineered for corrosion resistance, ease of installation and practical functionality, IMTRA LED lights are cost-effective, high-performance solutions for new boat construction and refits. 

“We are thrilled to have been selected as a Supplier of Choice for lighting by the ABA,” said Eric Braitmayer, president and CEO, IMTRA. “We have worked hard to develop the best-in-class range of LED lights for the marine industry. Being chosen as Supplier of Choice validates our decisions to put quality and service first.”



Since 1992, the ABA’s aim has been to obtain the highest quality materials at the lowest possible cost, while leveraging purchasing power. This alliance brings the united voice of a prestigious group of independent boatbuilders with annual boat sales over $1 billion and material purchases of approximately $600 million to the table. The savings from pooled purchasing and technical services, as well as reduced transaction costs translate into better pricing for the boat buying public and drive increased sales and product turns for manufacturers and suppliers alike.

“We are excited to expand our relationship with IMTRA as a key supplier to ABA members,” said Jay Patton, president, ABA. “Our members put a high value on service and superior performance when creating their boats. IMTRA shares that commitment to provide the very best products and services, which makes them a perfect partner for the ABA.”
