Teleflex Marine acquired Detwiler Industries earlier this year and during the last several months has integrated the new line of jack plates, controls and accessories into its family of products.

All Detwiler products now have their own Teleflex Marine part numbers, and stock is available for shipping from the company’s distribution center in Litchfield, Ill., according to Teleflex.

In addition, Teleflex has finished work on marketing materials to support the sales team as they take the Detwiler brand to market.

“We just completed the new Detwiler catalog and Web pages, and we’re eager to begin promoting this product line to our network of distributors and dealers”, Teleflex vice president of sales and marketing Tom Douglass said in a statement. “With the fall show season just around the corner, we’re ready to talk to distributors, dealers and boatbuilders about how adding Detwiler jack plates to their product mix will add to their bottom line.”

Teleflex said it is already working on “next-generation” products at its hydraulics facility in Richmond, British Columbia.
