Win-Tron Electronics names 14,000th dealership


Wholesale distributor Win-Tron Electronics welcomed its 14,000th dealership, The Marine Outline in Puerto Rico.

"Fifty states, more than 30 countries, six continents — that's quite a reach for a company that started with its entire inventory in the trunk of a sedan, working the Jersey Shore," Win-Tron Electronics president Eddie Winder said in a statement.

“We offer a non-traditional business model to our customers," Marine Outline owner Carlos Rios said. “We offer sales and service to marine technicians and fishermen, and visit customers on site. We bring the service and products to them. We are looking forward to offering our customer the expanded inventory provided by Win-Tron.”
