UK-based marine diesel engine supplier Beta Marine has announced the appointment of a new international distributor, Beta Marine Norway based in Sandnes, near Stavanger.

Headed up by Arild Pedersen, who has been selling and supporting Beta Marine in Norway since 2004 and was previously with power, motion and control equipment provider Hydrapower, Beta Marine Norway has already secured a number of new orders for engines and generator sets.

“Norway is an important market for us and we look forward to supporting Arild in developing our brand and building our market share in the region,” comments Beta Marine CEO, Andrew Growcoot.

Beta Marine supplies marine diesel engines and generator sets to the yacht, workboat and canal boat markets worldwide.
