Forespar Performance Products of California, has announced the introduction of its PerformanceCare+ consumer product line to the RV industry this August at the RVAA
conference in Chicago.
The company's brand names of Tea Tree Power, MareLube, LanoCote and ReFresh form the grouping known throughout the boating world as PerformanceCare+ and cover areas of need from odor control, to lubrication, to corrosion prevention and plumbing system maintenance. While many boaters have used the PerformanceCare+ offerings for their recreational vehicle, the company has never before officially put its hat in the RV industry ring, until now.
Forespar Products CEO Scott Foresman says the introduction of the product line to the RV industry is a natural next step in the company's growth.
"For many years our dealers, distributors and consumers have mentioned the benefits our products have made for the recreational vehicle," Foresman says. "It has been our intention for quite some time to enter this market and we feel the timing couldn't be more perfect. As we celebrate 50 years in 2016 we couldn't think of a better way to put our stake in the ground that we're growing beyond marine."
Heading up the company's PerformanceCare+ group and responsible for overseeing the introduction to the RV industry is David Levesque, Forespar's Global Consumer Products Manager. Levesque has enlisted the assistance of Barry and David Levy of Diversified Marketing in Newport Beach, California, well-known manufacturing representatives to the RV market.
"Barry and his son David are long-time boaters and customers of Forespar Products and we're thrilled they have agreed to represent our product line to the industry," LeVesque says. "We're excited to get started and look forward to a promising showing at the RVAA Conference."
The company also plans to introduce their high-performance Marelon plumbing systems and PureWater+ faucet filtration component at the RVAA Conference as well.
