PW Brands is expanding into the marine OEM market, the company announced.

“Having established itself as a successful manufacturer of towers, board racks, speakers, light bars and tower accessories, center console T-tops and boat covers, the company is well-positioned to provide OEMs with an unmatched collection of products backed by a fully staffed customer service center,” it said in a statement.

PW Brands’ product collection means OEM accounts can choose from a variety of integrated systems at various price points from one vendor, streamlining the ordering process. Almost every product can be customized with a boatbuilder’s logo as an added value.

“We are committed to the OEM segment and are proud to add marine industry veteran Mark Overbye to the PW Brands team to direct the foray into the OEM market,” PW Brands CEO John Walsh said in a statement.
