Bob Williamson, VP of the Marine Products Group, has been selected to head the Marine group. “Several branches of Baker Distributing have been selling Marvair Marine’s equipment for use in large commercial vessels. We were impressed by their customer focus and quality of their products. We then realized there is a significant opportunity in the pleasure boat market. After looking at all of our options, we found that Marvair was a leader in both commercial and pleasure boats and so it was a natural decision to partner and grow with them”, Mr. Williamson explained.
Shaun Hall, Marvair Marine’s National Sales Manager, elaborated on the benefits of this partnership. “Marvair Marine products will now be stocked in sales centers in fourteen states, from Virginia down through Florida and Texas and over to California. This provides us with unparalleled access to marine dealers in these states.”
