To further advance its growth in the boating market, Thetford Corp. established a dedicated global marine division.

Gianluca Silvestri was named business unit manager of the Thetford Marine Division as part of this new strategic corporate plan. He is responsible for unifying the company's Tecma, Thetford and Norcold brands in marine segments throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia.

Tecma includes china toilets with Italian design, and sanitation systems. Thetford manufactures contemporary cooktops and stoves, and Norcold makes built-in and portable compressor refrigerators for onboard use.

Silvestri comes to Michigan-based Thetford with more 10 years of business management experience. He will integrate the three Thetford brands in marine markets and reinforce the company's position as a leading supplier.

“We have a strong range of quality products among Tecma, Thetford and Norcold. By establishing this global marine division we can better meet the needs of boatbuilders, yards and retail customers,” Silvestri said in a statement.
