by Saltwater Stone 2 Dec 2018 09:15 PST

Leading marine systems manufacturer VETUS Maxwell has appointed E & P Marine, Inc. as its representative in South America and the Caribbean. The Miami-based leisure equipment supplier will represent the VETUS and Maxwell product lines in the region from Mexico through to Brazil and across the Caribbean islands.

The new appointment further expands VETUS Maxwell's network of representatives, increasing its international presence as it grows sales for its engines, generators, bow thrusters, control panels and other equipment for recreational craft and small commercial vessels.

Founded in 1980, E & P Marine has expanded from its original territories of Latin America and the Caribbean to worldwide representation for a growing number of major brands. With a range of customers including OEMs, dealers and wholesalers, E & P offers a variety of products as well as providing expert technical support.

Miguel A. Vasallo, President, E & P Marine, said: "We are delighted to represent VETUS Maxwell and to partner with a company that is renowned for its technology innovation and in-house product development. We are proud to be associated with only the most reputable manufacturers, so VETUS is an ideal addition to our offering with its reliable, efficient and easy to use and install equipment that stands out in the sector.

"We see lots of potential within our specific market and, as the VETUS Maxwell core products do not conflict with our existing representations, it will allow us to increase sales to our current customers in Latin America and the Caribbean and to continue to strive for technical sales. The philosophy of VETUS Maxwell's management and that of E & P Marine is very much in sync. We are looking forward to establishing a long-term relationship with VETUS Maxwell and demonstrating to our customers how important they are to us by representing the best products."

With headquarters in the Netherlands, as well as subsidiaries in 16 other countries and a worldwide distribution and service network, VETUS Maxwell has added a powerful version of its award-winning BOW PRO thruster, the BOW PRO Boosted, to its extensive product portfolio, with further 2018 launches including the new V-DOCKER Joystick Docking System and F-LINE 4-Cylinder Engines.

Chris DeBoy, VETUS Maxwell Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said: "The appointment of E & P Marine will enable us to grow sales in this key region, so we are looking forward to more customers having easy access to our products. We are continually working to increase and strengthen our network so that boat owners and operators all over the world can benefit from both our equipment and also the expert technical knowledge of our partners."
