Changing Places


Marine air-conditioning and sanitation equipment manufacturer Dometic Marine announced the promotion of Dennis Chiang to Asia Pacific marine divisional manager.

Singapore-based Chiang has been with Dometic for more than two years as regional marine OE and AM sales manager for Asia Pacific and has been working with Dometic products for the past 10 years.

“I am looking forward to the challenges of my new role,” Chiang said in a statement. “It is an exciting time for Dometic Marine in the Asia Pacific region, with lots of opportunities for new business.”

Air-conditioning, toilet, refrigeration and galley specialist Dometic is targeting rapid growth in the Asia Pacific region and is working on a 14-boat project to supply air conditioning to patrol boats in Mumbai.

Dometic also has completed the installation of its equipment on 10 Indian Coast Guard patrol craft as part of an ongoing 33-boat project for Timblo Dry Dock.

Earlier this year, the Dometic Group announced a global reorganization that consolidated the company’s global market focus to three large geographic regions.
