Campion Marine names distributor for South Korea


Canadian builder Campion Marine is expanding its reach to South Korea.

Campion, one of Canada's largest independent fiberglass powerboat builders, announced Doohan Co. Ltd. as the distributor of Campion products to South Korea. The agreement was effective June 1, according to a Campion release.

Campion Marine participated for the first time at this year's Korean Boat Show. It was there that Campion president Brock Elliott met with Park Min Seok to work out details of the agreement.

“We are extremely excited to have Doohan Company Limited as our distributor to enter the Korean market,” Elliot said in a statement. “With strong government support to promote leisure boating, Korea is a prime market for the quality product that Campion represents.”

Campion will host Park Min Seok at its 39th annual dealer celebration, which will take place Aug. 26-27 at its facility in Kelowna, British Columbia.

Campion thanked the NMMA for the opportunity to participate in the North American Pavilion at the Korean Boat Show and for the assistance of NMMA Sportshows vice president Mark Adams in Seoul.
