ComMar Sales, a marine manufactures rep group with offices along the East Coast and the Gulf, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

The company was started in 1969 in Northborough, Mass., representing marine electronics in the northeastern United States. President Tim Conroy arranged a buyout of the original ownership in 1990 with partners Mark Mitchell and Norm Macleod. Since that time, the company has expanded into the Southeast and the Gulf states with reps from Louisiana to Maine.

The product mix of the lines represented also changed to cover not only electronics manufacturers, but also distributor and boatbuilder product lines including safety products, deck hardware, steering, maintenance products, engine controls, plumbing, refrigeration, electrical and more.

"We have seen many changes over the years, but continue to serve our customer base with strong customer support with our main office and field salesmen and the best products available," Conroy said in a statement. "We look forward to continued future growth."
