Vesper Marine joins with CWR Electronics on distribution

Marine safety products manufacturer Vesper Marine is expanding distribution by partnering with CWR Electronics.

Leveraging CWR’s network will make parts and service more accessible to dealers and retailers, and will allow Vesper to meet demand caused by “rapid growth worldwide,” the company said.

New Jersey-based CWR is a wholesale electronics distributor for more than 225 manufacturers, as well as a full-service consumer electronics distributor. It will carry Vesper’s AIS systems, including the XB-8000 and WatchMate Vision transponders.

“Vesper Marine has experienced incredible growth in the U.S. due in part to our unique and reliable products but also because of a hard-won reputation for customer service that is second to none,” Vesper Marine CEO Jeff Robbins said in a statement. “By partnering with CWR, an established distributor with a proven track record for excellent service, as well as a centralized location, we will further streamline the shipping and servicing process.”
