Winegard Company, a manufacturer of satellite TV antennas, receivers and accessories, has formed a marine division and hired David M. Quarters as director of the new unit.

Based in Burlington, Iowa, Winegard is seeking to expand its marine industry presence and increase sales of its connectivity, entertainment and communications technology across recreational boating and fishing markets, inland workboats and marinas and waterfront resorts.

“While Winegard might not yet be a household name in the marine industry, our company has pioneered mobile communications technology for six decades,” said Quarters in a statement. “We are an established leader and innovator in the RV and commercial trucking industries and are known for keeping people connected with their lives and the outside world in challenging environments. We are focusing on the marine market as a natural application for Winegard technology and an excellent growth opportunity for our company.”

Products such as the Winegard ConnecT Marine Wi-Fi/4GLTE Extender and WAVU Marine Amplified Omnidirectional HDTV Antenna are engineered and built to help recreational boaters stay connected while aboard. Winegard says its products are also good for commercial applications.
