U.K.-based marine electronics manufacturer Iris Corp. announced an agreement with Gemeco Marine Accessories LLC to serve as the company’s exclusive North American distributor.

Gemeco is taking over U.S. and Canadian distribution for Iris’ thermal imaging, marine camera/recording systems, LCD monitors and other marine electronics products.

“We couldn’t be more excited about aligning with Gemeco — or to be sharing this positive news with the industry,” Iris Corp. North American sales manager Tony Digweed said in a statement.

Iris’ U.S. headquarters is in Fort Lauderdale.

“Gemeco is well-known throughout the marine industry, and over the years has forged excellent business partnerships with dealers coast to coast,” Digweed said.

“Even more important to us, however, is the company’s reputation for providing industry customers with superior technical support. By teaming up with Gemeco we’re confident that dealers will receive the technical support and assistance they need to ensure a positive experience and ‘smooth sailing’ for our dealers and end-users alike.”
