“We were looking to expand our selling efforts in the upper Midwest marine market, CDI/Balmar sales manager Frank Ahlbin said. “Further, Balmar products also have growing application in the recreational vehicle market, as lithium batteries are replacing generators on all classes of RVs. Balmar’s regulator products are being used to charge and protect LiFePO4 batteries. S.M. Osgood provides unique capabilities to sell to both the marine and RV markets.”

CDI Electronics has been serving the marine industry with ignition components, diagnostic software and technical support for 34 years. Balmar has also been serving the industry for 34 years with DC charging solutions for sail and powerboat applications.
