Dometic Marine announced the winners of its Dometic International Marine Excellence Awards for distributors and dealers at the Marine Equipment Trade Show in Amsterdam.

The awards are based on sales of the company's brands, which include Condaria, Cruisair, Marine Air, SeaLand and Waeco, as well as the company's own Dometic brand.

"2010 has been another tough year for the boating industry, but Dometic returned greater than expected sales using the successful combination of award-winning products that satisfy boater demands and the world's very best distributor and dealer network," Ned Trigg, senior vice president of global marine sales, said in a statement.

There are four categories in the awards: Sales Platinum (one winner, Seabreeze Industries), Sales Gold (14 companies), Sales Silver (22 companies) and a Service Award (10 companies).
