Seatorque Control Systems, a manufacturer of inboard marine propulsion systems, has named Halyard, specialty exhaust systems provider based in the United Kingdom, as its exclusive distributor for the European and Scandinavian markets.
Seatorque products include the Bolt-On Shaft System, an oil-filled, self-contained shaft and thrust bearing assembly that the company says reduces friction, underbody drag, engine vibration, noise and mechanical losses.
“We are thrilled to join forces with Halyard and eagerly look forward to working with them in the future,” Jana Stolper, Seatorque executive vice president, said in a statement. “Their ability to offer exceptionally designed engineering solutions and superb customer service made Halyard a natural partner for us as we expand our customer base throughout Europe.”
David Johnson, sales director at Halyard said in the statement that Seatorque’s propulsion systems “perfectly align” with Halyard products. “Halyard’s tagline is ‘The Science of Silence.’ Adding Seatorque to our product mix means we can emphasize this focus and advance it further with improved performance through reduced vibration and a more efficient use of thrust from the engines and propellers,” he said.
Halyard will have Seatorque equipment in its display. At the upcoming Seawork Show in Southampton, U.K., June 11-13.
