Marine manufacturer and importer Imtra said it is now the exclusive distributor for Zipwake dynamic trim control systems in the United States and Canada.

Under the terms of the relationship agreement, Imtra is responsible for increasing awareness of the Swedish manufacturer’s latest developments in trim control solutions while driving North American sales.

“By leveraging the respective strengths of both organizations, Imtra and Zipwake will offer an outstanding new product set to the recreational and commercial boat markets,” Imtra sales vice president Chip Farnham said in a statement.

“Zipwake’s innovative and competitive solutions for the well-known trim problems of planing and semi-planing boats attracted us to work with them, as they fit in well with our existing portfolio,” Farnham said. “We are excited to offer these high-quality products to North American boat owners and operators, who choose comfort and enjoy performance.”

“We are very proud to have reached this agreement,” Zipwake CEO Lorentz Simonson said. “With Imtra as our agent in North America, we are confident they will be able to provide effective market penetration and unparalleled customer support. We look forward to a lasting and rewarding partnership.”
