Our weekly roundup of dealers and distributors includes news from Hubbell Marine, CWR Electronics and SunDance Marine.

To streamline international distribution, Hubbell Marine Electrical Products Group brought on independent sales rep Brunger Export.

The company will handle all territories outside the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada.

"We're excited to welcome Brunger to the Hubbell Marine team," said Joe DiMaria, director of marine marketing and sales, in a statement. "They will foster new relationships and work closely with our existing customers to ensure that they continue to receive the support, coverage and service that are expected from Hubbell."

CWR Electronics added Tifosi Optics to its product line.

The move marks the first time CWR will supply a full line of sunglass to its dealers, the company said.

"We are always eager to add new and different product categories to our line," CWR president Brian Swanke said in a statement. "Now our dealers can wear Tifosi sunglasses while enjoying our marine, outdoor and fitness supplies."

New Jersey-based CWR is a full-service distributor of marine, outdoor and consumer recreational products.

Pompano Beach, Fla.-based SunDance Marine opened the SunDance Marine Yacht Center in Pompano Beach.

The new center will be located at Hidden Harbor Marina, 2300 NE 16th Street in Pompano Beach, and will be called SunDance Marine Yacht Center at Hidden Harbor.

"We are receiving hundreds of requests from new customers to service their vessels. We just didn't have the facilities or enough trained personnel to handle the growth in our Fort Lauderdale facility," service manager Randy Carter said in a statement. "In order to meet this demand, we knew we needed to add highly qualified technicians and a location that would allow us to expand our capabilities while having great access for our customers."

The new facility boasts a 75-ton hoist and will be able to accommodate vessels up to 80 feet in length.

SunDance operates dealerships in Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach and Jensen Beach/Stuart.
