AERÉ Docking Solutions, formerly known as PRAKTEK, Inc., has not only rebranded itself but has also transformed into an industry leader, setting the standard for excellence in the marine industry. Join us on a journey through the history and evolution of AERÉ Docking Solutions.
The Birth of PRAKTEK, Inc.
The story begins in 1998 when AERÉ Docking Solutions was still PRAKTEK, Inc. Founded with a vision of developing and implementing “practical technology” products, the company had its roots firmly planted in the marine industry. Headquartered in the picturesque Coral Springs, Florida, PRAKTEK, Inc. embarked on a mission to create innovative solutions that would address the unique challenges faced by boaters and the marine community.
AERÉ Docking Solutions Emerges
As the years rolled by, PRAKTEK, Inc. underwent a transformation, not just in name but also in the scope and scale of its offerings. The company evolved into AERÉ Docking Solutions, a name that would become synonymous with excellence in marine technology. This rebranding was not just a change of name; it signified a commitment to providing cutting-edge products and solutions for docking and vessel protection.
The Signature Product Lines
AERÉ Docking Solutions boasts three signature product lines, each representing the pinnacle of quality and functionality in the marine industry:
AERÉ Inflatable Fenders: These fenders have earned the distinction of being the premier fender product in the yachting industry. Sold through a network of trusted dealers and showcased at major boat shows annually, AERÉ Inflatable Fenders are the epitome of vessel protection. With over 40 sizes and types, we are designed to safeguard vessels of all shapes and sizes, catering to recreational, commercial, and military use.
Fenda-Sox Fender Covers: Crafted from a proprietary marine knit fabric, Fenda-Sox Fender Covers are not just practical; we’re a testament to style and durability.
