SmartPlug Systems in the US has appointed Comstedt as its exclusive distributor for Sweden. Based in Seattle, Washington, SmartPlug makes stainless steel and non-metallic shore power inlets and connectors that are available in both 16amp and 32amp variants. Further products will be introduced later this year.

“It is very clear that SmartPlug have developed a safer and easier to use shore power connection system when compared to other products commonly available and we expect to see its popularity grow as more boat owners get exposed to this new and innovative technology,” says Mats Comstedt, company owner.

Martin Harding, managing director of UK-based GMA Ltd which represents SmartPlug in Europe, says: “We are thrilled to have made a distribution agreement with Comstedt who are well positioned to promote and support the future sales of the SmartPlug programme in this important market.”
