Vetus/Maxwell names U.S. sales rep

Vetus/Maxwell selected ComMar to handle all of its Eastern U.S. market representation.

The two companies have worked together for more than two decades, with ComMar handling Vetus' northeast U.S. territory exclusively for the past 10 years. ComMar will now represent the Vetus and Maxwell brands in the New England, Mid Atlantic, Southeast and Gulf regions.

"ComMar is one of the strongest and most respected rep groups I've ever worked with," Vetus/Maxwell U.S. CEO Jay Stockmann said in a statement. "With our array of products and systems they are positioned to take Vetus/Maxwell deeper into the aftermarket and OEM relationships we've been developing."

Vetus/Maxwell is a Dutch maker of more than 2,500 marine products and systems, including diesel engines, fuel, wastewater, maneuvering, exhaust and hydraulics. Best known for its Vetus thrusters and Maxwell windlasses in North America, the company is aggressively seeking to develop relationships with American boatbuilders.

Rhode Island-based ComMar has a long history of marketing a range of marine products.
