Delta "T" Systems, Sea-Fire Marine and Marine Exhaust Systems are teaming up to create Global Marine Alliance, joining forces for marketing, sales, warehousing, distribution, trade shows and technical support.

Baltimore-based Sea-Fire Marine makes fire suppression systems. Marine Exhaust Systems, of Riviera Beach, Fla., manufactures diesel exhaust systems. Delta “T,” also based in Riviera Beach, makes custom ventilation systems for the pleasure boat, commercial and military markets.

"The possibilities are endless with the Global Marine Alliance," said Delta "T" Systems president Lynn Oien, in a statement. "Sea-Fire and Marine Exhaust's products complement our versatile ventilation systems, and the cross-promotion will increase sales for everyone."

With cross-training already in progress, employees from all three companies will understand and know how to install each other's products.

"We all have very technical systems and deal with similar situations, such as engine room temperature," said Sea-Fire president Ernie Ellis, in a statement. "It just made sense for us to unite. The alliance will also benefit our customers. We work with many of the same companies and now can consolidate shipments and offer three times the products and services."

"By combining efforts, we'll have a massive global presence and ensure our customers unmatched safety and performance," said Marine Exhaust vice president Sheila Prieschl, in a statement.
