Growth for Torqeedo in Asia and Australia
Power Equipment promotes Torqeedo in Australia
With new partnerships, Torqeedo opens up new markets in Asia and Australia. Power Equipment Pty Ltd. from Melbourne, on Australia’s southern coast, is the new distributor for all Torqeedo products in Australia and New Zealand. Power Equipment holds a strong market position on the Fifth Continent with own subsidiaries throughout the country and a dealer network including Australia's largest naval store, JV Marine World.
Power Equipment will introduce Torqeedo’s innovative electric propulsion systems to the Australian market through a large-scale test event on the water. Journalists from all regions of Australia are expected to attend. Consumers can test drive Torqeedo in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland in New Zealand.
New distributor in the Gulf region
Exalto Emirates LLC is Torqeedo’s new sales partner in the United Arab Emirates. As a major supplier of Marine equipment in the Gulf region, the Dubai-based company is now the exclusive distributor of the German manufacturer for the Middle East. Aside from stocking Torqeedo’s complete product and spare parts range Exalto Emirates is the regions only authorized service center with factory trained service personnel.
“We are extremely proud and honored to have been appointed as Torqeedo’s regional distributor.“ Exalto Emirates General Manager John W. R. Paul comments. „There is a lot of focus on green energy in our area, and electric propulsion is high on the agenda of local governments and operators.“ Exalto Emirates recently debuted Torqeedo’s entire outboard motor range at the Dubai International Boat Show.
"We are delighted to expand our international network with these two partners. As leading companies in their respective regions Power Equipment and Exalto Emirates do have, besides leisure boating, a strong focus on commercial applications and the project business with us." says Christian Pho Duc, Senior Vice President Sales.
