Transhield Inc., Elkhart, Ind., manufactures universal boat covers that protect boats during storage or transportation without damaging paint, plastic or other finishes. The three-layer covers, an alternative to conventional shrink-wrapping, will now be carried by U.S. Distributing from warehouses in Phoenix, Ariz., Portland, Ore., and Missoula, Mont. Transhield announced the appointment of U.S. Distributing as an official outlet for the product because of its marine industry knowledge, service and products in the Northwestern U.S.
