Schmitt & Ongaro Marine Products president Tim Schmitt said the company recently established a warehouse just outside Amsterdam.

The company said the venture enables it to efficiently ship products to European boatbuilders, distributors, dealers and chandleries. It results in smaller inventory commitments from customers and quicker turns. The facility is already stocked and sales can be made in euros or U.S. dollars.

Schmitt & Ongaro is represented in Europe by International Manufacturers Direct Sales and a growing network of distributors.

“This warehouse demonstrates our long-term commitment to Europe,” Schmitt said in a statement. “Tony Robertshaw and Rene Kemperman with IMDS are excellent at creating European relationships and sales, and now we can better support them. As we continue to serve our existing customers we are poised for growth and seek distributors and dealers in open regions.”
