Electric drive systems manufacturer Torqeedo will now be represented by parent company Deutz in South Florida.
West Palm Beach’s Deutz Power Center Florida in West Palm Beach — which opened earlier this year — will provide parts, sales and service for Torqueedo’s electromobility products from 0.5 to 100 kW for both commercial and recreational needs.
“We are pleased to offer a sales and service point for our sister company Torqeedo in the important South Florida marine market,” said Deutz Corporation president and CEO Bob Mann in a statement. “Our colleagues at Torqeedo are world leaders in the electrification of marine drive systems, and we look forward to joining them on this exciting journey.”
Torqeedo’s hybrid and electric outboards, sail drives, inboards and pod motors — as well as its Deep Blue and Deep Blue batteries — will be available at the location.
“We’re thrilled that Torqeedo customers in Florida will have access to a fully-stocked sales and service facility with a highly trained and professional staff...in West Palm Beach,” said Torqeedo president Steve Trkla. “We look forward to exploring more opportunities for cooperation in the U.S.”
