Local manufacturer a leading marine industry supplier

Pro Fender, pontoon & jetty fenders systems manufacturer, is a great local success story. The company is owned by husband and wife team, Ross and Suzee Cooney who are no strangers to marina life as they have been on the Gold Coast and servicing the marine industry for more than thirty years.

Ross explains, “Pro Fender began its unique business over fifteen years ago with a distinctive range of pontoon and jetty fender systems. The fender systems cleverly incorporate a sailtrack installation system allowing the fenders to be securely attached to the pontoon or jetty without any protruding mountings.”

The Pro Fender range has accommodated boats from 10’ to 130’ in length. So confident in their products, Ross and Suzee offer the longest unconditional warranty in the industry. “We give a 5-year warranty which covers every aspect, from manufacturing to installation.”

Many thousands of metres of the Pro Fender products have been supplied and installed from Perth to Melbourne and along the east coast. The company recently completed super yacht marina berths in both Cairns and Hamilton Island.

“As a premier fender manufacturer, Pro Fender products are proven durable and long lasting, and that’s why we have become a preferred supplier to Yacht Clubs and Marinas throughout South-East Queensland and beyond,” according to Ross.

The secret behind Pro Fender’s popularity is the manufacturing technology that incorporates the latest high frequency PVC welder to build a completely seamless product. Ross explains, “All competing pontoon fenders are sewn – and sewn seams usually deteriorate under the hot Australian sun in less than a year.”

Pro Fender is the industry leader offering quality product, innovation and design for over fifteen years. The company is committed to constant research and development of marine fenders using the latest technology in manufacturing and materials to create the best pontoon and jetty fenders.
