Actuant Electrical’s marine segment said it had appointed two outside rep firms to grow sales in the North American market. The Actuant brands include Marinco, Mastervolt, Ancor, BEP, Guest and AFI.

“It is essential that we have strong, technically oriented, outside sales representatives who understand our products and can represent them well at a regional level,” said Kevin Meister, sales leader for the Americas’ Marine and Mobile segment, in a statement. “The additional local sales talent will ensure the constant flow of information and support to our OEM and aftermarket customers especially as we prepare for future growth.”

The company named SGL Sales and Marketing to represent aftermarket sales in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. It will also handle OEM accounts in Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota.

CGW Associates, which has represented Ancor in the Northeast US region, will also represent all Actuant brands in eastern Canada.
