About Us

The Accon name has been associated with superior quality precision metalwork for more than 30 years. Accon began as a manufacturer of transistor bases and other precision metal stampings. In 1988, Accon entered the marine industry with the introduction of our 102 series lift rings and the POP-UP® CLEAT, and both the company and the marine industry were changed forever. John and his son, Bernd, used their vast tool and diemaking knowledge and experience to develop an increasing variety of flush mounted, superior quality marine hardware, and the marine industry responded to the fresh ideas and product innovation that became Accon’s trademark in the industry. In 1995, Accon Marine became an independent company under the leadership of Bernd “Bernie” Czipri, President. John Czipri remains with the company, designing and developing new products.

As a family owned and operated company, Accon Marine strives to provide the marine industry with the highest quality, most innovative hardware and accessories available anywhere. Our goal is not to be the biggest supplier of marine hardware, but to be the best supplier of the best marine hardware. As boaters, we know that the quality and function of a boat’s hardware affects the owner’s satisfaction with the boat—so our products have to meet our high standards before they are introduced to the industry. If a product doesn’t meet the standard of quality and function that we demand on our own boats, we won’t sell it. It’s that simple.

Our customers’ input into this process is extremely important to us. Your suggestions for improving an existing product, or informing us of your needs for new, innovative products are always welcome. Many of the products in this catalog were developed to meet our customers’ needs for flush mounted marine hardware. If you don’t find what you need in this catalog, please call us and let us know what you’re looking for—chances are we can adapt an existing product to meet your needs, or possibly design a new product to fill a void in the existing market.
