2019 – Third Generation Of Hallerberg Family Now At The Helm of Fortress Marine Anchors
Fortress Marine Anchors announced TODAY the sale of the company to Dylan Hallerberg, grandson of company founder Don Hallerberg.
Dylan Hallerberg (President and Majority Shareholder) purchased Fortress Marine Anchors company from his father, D’Milo Hallerberg, with a co-investment from Fortress Marine Anchor General Manager Rigo Rogue (General Manager and Minority Investor).
Established in 1986, Fortress Marine Anchors has been offering 17 different models of anchor all proudly made in the USA. The anchors have been divided into two branded models, the line of Fortress, and the infamous Guardian. In addition, the unique value proposition that has allowed the product to stay in the market for so many years, and beat many competitors in the Marine Industry is the distinctive aspect of being constructed using a high-tensile, corrosion-resistant, aluminum magnesium alloy. These features provide Fortress Anchors with a lighter weight without jeopardizing the superior performance offered in its personality.
“It’s an honor and privilege to be able to follow in my father’s and grandfather’s footsteps to lead an outstanding group of people producing and supporting what I truly believe are the best anchors available,” Dylan Hallerberg said. “In independent test after test, Fortress anchors have consistently been top-rated for their overall performance, quality and holding capability in any sea bed,” he added. Moreover, the acquisition of the company by Mr Hallerberg represent an opportunity to drive a stagnant business in an exciting direction with the expertise of both Dylan and Rigo. Both combined have well over 40+ years of relevant experience, with a great passion for boating and the marine industry. As the manufacturer of the world’s best anchor, we take pride in providing superior customer service and product performance.
We are more than happy to commence this new business venture with such an incredible acquisition that brightens the future of Fortress Marine Anchors culture, and family. Join us in congratulating Dylan Hallerberg, new owner of Fortress Anchors, for keeping the company in the family!
