The Ocean Marketing team of manufacturers representatives was supposed to be fanned out from Maine to Florida this week, visiting as many as 500 dealers with new products during the firm's annual spring dealer blitz.

But the Coronavirus outbreak quickly changed all that. "We're making select calls by appointment only and following the CDC guidelines for face-to-face meetings," said Ocean Marketing President and CEO John Thommen.

"For the next few weeks at least, we'll be relying on MicroSoft Teams, Zoom and conference calls and also re-introducing our unique Tech Tips By Email to stay connected, present new products and make sure products essential for safety, maintenance and repair continue to flow through the supply chain," he added.

Headquartered in Guilford, Connecticut, Ocean Marketing has been representing leading marine equipment and accessories manufacturers since 1981.
