About Marathon

Marathon was established in May 1992 to offer the marine industry a different style of customer service based on flexibility, a strong supplier/customer relationship and modern streamlined business practices. To this day, Marathon continues to be innovative in its approach to sales and maintains an efficient and streamlined administration structure ensuring maximum flexibility and service to our customers. This unique business approach and the value we place on customer relationships enables Marathon to be at the forefront of marine distribution both in the UK and overseas.
