What a great time we had in Amsterdam (work wise) at the very impressive marine show, METS 2010. One of the successes we can now announce is the appointment of French marine distribution company Pochon SA as Vesper Marine’s new Distributor in Europe.
Pochon is headquartered in the beautiful town of La Rochelle on the west coast of France. They will represent all of Vesper Marine products including the 2010 DAME Award nominated AIS WatchMate 850 Transponder and distribute Vesper Marine products throughout France via its network of over 450 dealers and outlets.
The addition of Pochon to our growing European network of distributors now delivers coverage for us across both coasts of France with Pochon’s five company locations, over 450 dealers, a significant web presence and a widely distributed marine products catalogue that includes over 20,000 products.
Pochon will be debuting the WatchMate 850 Transponder at the International Paris Boat Show on December the 4th. This is the first public boat show in the world for the recently released WatchMate 850 Transponder to be displayed. If the recent trade events are an indicator of success we expect this new product to be very successful in France as we have had loads of trade reviewers commenting on the ease of use and benefits of filtering features that declutter AIS information on WatchMate’s.
It seems appropriate to toast this latest success with a little French Champaign!
