Actuant Electrical's marine segment, which includes the Marinco, Mastervolt, Ancor, BEP, Guest and AFI brands, is expanding its outside sales representation in North America.

Actuant Electrical’s marine segment offers a broad range of power products. It is essential that we have strong, technically oriented, outside sales representatives who understand our products and can represent them well at a regional level,” Kevin Meister, sales leader for the Americas, marine and mobile segment, said in a statement. “The additional local sales talent will ensure the constant flow of information and support to our OEM and aftermarket customers, especially as we prepare for future growth and introduce new, innovative products into the market.”

SGL Sales and Marketing will represent the Actuant brands’ aftermarket sales channel in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, and will have aftermarket and OEM responsibility in Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota and South and North Dakota.

CGW Associates, which has represented the Ancor brand for Actuant in the Northeast region for many years, will expand its role to represent all of the Actuant brands in eastern Canada.
