With products being in stock since mid-December, Paxton is already providing customers with Sea Hawk’s comprehensive portfolio of premium quality antifouling paints, primers, and marine coating products.

“Through the last several months of developing a relationship, it’s easy to see that Paxton is an ideal addition to the Sea Hawk family of distributors,” said Tommy Craft, Sea Hawk Vice President of Sales. “As the mid-Atlantic’s longest standing purveyors of quality marine products, Paxton has the geographic reach to provide their network of marine service professionals with just-in-time availability of a wide assortment of Sea Hawk antifouling paints, primers and marine coating products,” Craft added. “Sea Hawk premium yacht finishes are the perfect complement to Paxton’s wholesale product offering,” said Jim Beale, Paxton Company President. “We constantly reinvest our profits into our employees, into quality brands like Sea Hawk paint and into technologies that add value to our customers,” Beale added.
