Texas-based AER Supply said it signed manufacturer’s representative Richards Marine Marketing to be AER’s representative for the C-Marine thruster product line in Alaska, Oregon, Washington state and British Columbia.
AER Supply is a marine wholesale distribution company specializing in complete technical systems for the commercial and pleasure boat markets. Richards Marine, of Heisson, Wash., will promote the C-Marine thruster line to dealers, installers and boatbuilders in the region.
“Richards Marine Marketing is a well-respected manufacturers’ representative, with a proven track record of delivering strong results for lines such as Mastervolt and Marinco. We have great confidence in Richards’ ability to get the word out about the C-Marine thruster to customers throughout the U.S. Pacific Northwest and British Columbia and we look forward to working with them,” AER Supply general manager Rudolf Mes said in a statement.
AER Supply said the C-Marine electric bow thruster is an important device when moving vessels at low speed. It makes maneuvering easier, safer and quicker. The propeller, made of maintenance-free synthetic material, can run in two directions, producing a jet flow to port or starboard.
The company said each propeller is designed to achieve maximum thrust in a small tunnel diameter, making maneuvering in tight spots against a strong current or a shifty wind much easier.
