Dealers and Distributors

Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from Win-Tron Electronics and Encore Boat Builders.

Win-Tron Electronics of Spring Lake Heights, N.J., was selected as the exclusive U.S. wholesale distributor for the Apollo II and Apollo II High Definition thermal night-vision cameras manufactured by OceanView Technologies.

"OceanView Apollo II cameras enable users to see clearly not only in total darkness, but also in a wide variety of poor lighting conditions including heavy rain, bright sun and some fog," said Eddie Winder, senior vice president of Win-Tron Electronics, in a statement.

"The Apollo II makes boating more safe and enjoyable and extends the day into total darkness," he continued. "Now floating debris, channel markers and other vessels are easy to see."

Win-Tron Electronics offers the Apollo II and Apollo II HD thermal night-vision cameras wholesale-only to reselling dealers.
