Boating accessory manufacturer MarineTech Products bought all of the assets of The Watchman, a manufacturer of lower-unit and transom locks.

“We felt this was a perfect fit,” MarineTech president Larry Grundtner said in a statement. “The expansion of our line of premium-quality Panther-branded locks, aimed at pleasure boaters, is a huge ‘value add’ for our customer base. We’re always looking for new ideas to enhance the boating experience, and the addition of The Watchman is another reason for boaters to look to MarineTech for quality, convenience and innovation.”

The Watchman will continue to be made in Albion, Ind., but sales and marketing will move to MarineTech Products’ Vadnais Heights, Minn., headquarters.
