Triton Boats Joins Union Sportsmen’s Alliance as Corporate Partner

Posted: 5/1/2008

The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance (USA), a program of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP) in partnership with the AFL-CIO and twenty of its affiliated unions, has added Triton Boats as one of its newest corporate partners.

Based in Ashland City, Tennessee, Triton Boats, a member of Brunswick Corporation, manufactures up to 8,000 fiberglass and aluminum fishing boats a year, the most of any manufacturer under one brand, according to the company’s Founder and President Earl Bentz.

As a new USA corporate partner, Triton has generously donated one of its newest crafts, an 18 Explorer tournament bass boat, to support the USA in its drive to increase membership in the hunting and fishing association, which provides union members a forum for sharing their passion for the outdoors but also getting helpful hunting and fishing tips, receiving great discounts on gear, and staying current on the TRCP’s efforts to conserve America’s sporting heritage.

Preserving the outdoors is close to Bentz’s heart and a key reason he partnered with the USA and the TRCP, a coalition of organizations and individuals working to guarantee all Americans quality places to hunt and fish. “The TRCP has always been a staunch supporter of preserving land and habitat, so working with them is a natural alliance for Triton,” says Bentz.

Aligning his company with union members also makes good business sense for Triton. “USA members are our customer base,” continues Bentz, who appreciates the all-American synergy of the USA. “Our company’s success is due in part to our many loyal union customers. We are honored to partner with the USA to equip a hardworking union member with one of our highest quality fishing boats.”

“One of the USA’s commitments is to seek out and deliver exceptional opportunities for union sportsmen and sportswomen that uphold their union values, said Fred Myers, Executive Director of the USA. “That’s why we’re so proud of our new relationship with Triton Boats. We are very excited to offer our members the chance to win a U.S.-made Triton boat powered by a union-made Mercury engine, and we look forward to working with Triton in the future.”

Inspired by the legacy of Theodore Roosevelt, the TRCP is a coalition of organizations and grassroots partners working together to preserve the traditions of hunting and fishing.
