Want to be a MarineDiesel Distributor or Dealer? This is what we require.

 

MarineDiesel has become a company with true global reach. Our sales and distribution network reaches to over 30 countries and regions around the world. We have sold engines in far more locations.

Here at MarineDiesel, we receive around a dozen dealer and distributor inquiries every month. In the last couple of years, we have drastically tightened the requirements to become a distributor for our engines.

Why?

Quite simply, engines require a level of after sale service that most trading houses are unable or unwilling to provide. Unlike with other marine equipment, like most electronics, with engines, spare parts in a country are essential. Trained technical staff are essential. You cannot merely keep an engine in inventory and be “good to go”. Distributorship requires an investment, not only in money, but in time, along with the capability and willingness to adequately develop a local market.

So, what does it take to become a MarineDiesel distributor? Distributors are partners, in every respect. Five primary criteria:

  1. A commitment to factory training. In Europe. On an ongoing basis.
  2. Successful completion of training. Distributors must service everything that they sell.
  3. A commitment to maintain adequate levels of spare parts in country, in inventory, based on sales.
  4. A commitment to minimum annual sales.
  5. Adequate service facilities, infrastructure, and personnel to rebuild engines, test engines, commission engines, and service engines.

All MarineDiesel distributors must be approved based on the above points. If a company wants to sell our engines, but lacks the service facilities, people, or financial capability to adequately become a distributor, we will usually make them a dealer, under an existing distributor’s contract.

There are regions without existing distributors. If you are interested in working with MarineDiesel, please check our Global Dealer Map and Contact us with your inquiry.

MarineDiesel Dealer Profile – Uganda

 

 

Today’s posting is about the MarineDiesel dealer in Uganda, Equatorial Training and Marine Services (“ETMS”).

Though Uganda is a landlocked country, there are numerous lakes and rivers in the country, including Lake Victoria, and MarineDiesel has conducted a fair amount of business there over the years and completed numerous projects.

A new member in the Marinediesel family, Equatorial Training and Marine Services Ltd. (ETMS) is a marine Project Management company, with a primary focus on marine operations, training, safety / security ‎and remote, last mile, logistics solutions.
The partnership with Marinediesel is a positive step towards promoting and providing a world class product in a region where choice is limited and readily available competence based marine training, almost non-existent. Through its existing relationships with multiple boat builders, government contractors‎, corporations, NGO’s and governments in Sub Saharan Africa and beyond, ETMS intends to provide reliable, purpose driven solutions to serve its customers needs.
Furthermore, ETMS has, for almost a decade been the primary funding partner to the National Lake Rescue Institute / Safe Waters Foundation‎, an independent non-governmental / not for profit foundation registered in Uganda and Sweden. The mission of the Foundation is to secure, enable, and support emergency first response initiatives through management, research, training and development activities. Emphasis is on water safety and security, drowning prevention, search and rescue, as well as communication and coordination of emergency response. The latter is achieved through a Carmenta CoordCom emergency communication, control, and management facility set up in Kampala, Uganda, to serve both humanitarian and commercial needs.
The combination of a commercial entity offering support, knowledge, solutions, and products to a developing business community, and a humanitarian foundation striving to develop safety awareness and enhance the emergency management systems in the region enables a push-and-pull philosophy where business development supports humanitarian development, and where grass-root humanitarian development serves to contribute to better living conditions, strengthening social institutions and supporting an evolving regional economy.
National Lake Rescue Institute / Safe Waters Foundation have a strong, decade long, relationship with the international Search and Rescue Community at large, and the Swedish Sea Rescue Society (SSRS) in particular.
This relationship with ETMS, enables focused support to be delivered to the existing, regional Marindiesel owners by establishing a Marinediesel operations, maintenance and training facility, initially serving the Lake Victoria region in close cooperation with National Lake Rescue Institute / Safe Waters Foundation.

MarineDiesel Dealer Profile – New Zealand

 

 

Today’s article continues our profiles of our extensive global dealer network.

New Zealand is an interesting market in the marine business. Though there is a well-developed marine industry in the country (not to mention some of the world’s best naval architects), the geographic location and relatively small population often means that it can be difficult or time consuming to find reliable supplies of spare parts or service. Indeed, New Zealand is often combined with Australia in many manufacturers’ distribution networks, requiring delays in obtaining spare parts.

Performance Imports in Cambridge, New Zealand has represented MarineDiesel in the country for several years. In business for over 40 years, Performance Imports also represents Steyr and Alamarin water jets, among other popular brands.

With marine engines, after sale service and spare parts are critical. Boasting modern facilities, Performance Imports offers its’ customers complete professional technical service, along with spare parts, throughout New Zealand.

Performance Imports can quote your project with any MarineDiesel engine. Contact them today or visit their web site to learn more about them:

Engine Market Insights: Poland

 

 

Today’s Engine Market Insights interview is with Mr. Jacek Pawlik, Managing Director at JP Marine, MarineDiesel’s distributors in Poland.

JP MARINE Sp z o.o. – SKA

80-180 Gdansk, ul. Jabloniowa 2
Poland
Tel: +48 58 321 71 71
Mob: +48 603 399 300
biuro@jpmarine.pl

1. How long have you been in business in Poland?

JP Marine is part of a holding company that has been operating in commercial real estate, automotive and retail market for a long time, and in marine industry for over 5 years.

 

  1. What is your company’s mission and goals?

JP Marine`s mission is to provide its clients with a comprehensive range of services at the highest quality level.   

 

  1. What makes JP Marine unique? (Services offered, capabilities, etc.)

Apart from distribution of drive system, JP Marine also offers, to make its offer fully comprehensive: 

–  all kinds of accessories and elements for boat equipment  –  www.marineengineering.pl,

–  design and production of  custom boats  based on our own shipyard in Gdynia, an international team of designers, including interior designers  – www.creeyacht.pl

–  chartering of fast boats –  RIB type (WWW.rib-ride.com).

 Our service centres are located in Gdańsk, Warsaw and in Szczecin, where in addition to current general engine repairs we also repair transmissions and gearboxes.   

 

  1. In addition to MarineDiesel, what are your other major product lines?

In addition to MarineDiesel engine distribution, we also offer drive units for rescue boats, engines with  keel cooling for the fishing industry, as well as drives such as Z-type transmissions, and in particular trimmed surface drives France Helices. In each instance, we select and put together the most optimal engine-transmission-propeller, to meet client expectations and efficiency parameters. We are often engaged in boat repowering and serve customers not only from Poland, but also from other countries.    

  1. What is the engine market like in Poland?

While shipyard market is developing very dynamically, not only in steel and aluminium construction segment, but also composite segment,  the local marine engine market is unfortunately quite narrow and dominated by providers offering the cheapest engines.  This is because the vast majority of shipyard production is carried out for export purposes, where producers have no influence on order specifications. The narrow domestic markets covers mainly inland vessels, sail vessels with small engines up to  50 hp . The small number of leisure boats for domestic markets have been dominated by one engine provider and convincing clients to the alternative is not easy: it is a question of habit and convenience. This is also because the target customers in Poland have little knowledge about possible options for drive solutions; this also concerns corporate clients.  The weak point of our local tender procedures is their weak preparation when it comes to the knowledge of the subject matter, for instance: unrealistic delivery terms, excluding V engines, demanding very narrow power ranges, and at the same time the deciding criterion is in 100% of the cases the lowest price.

 

 

  1. What are your greatest challenges in the engine market?

The main challenge we have to face is a change in mentality and habits in the shipyard industry, among corporate clients, and education of motor boat users in technical issues  (hence our extended technical section on our website).

 

 

  1. Where are the greatest opportunities in the engine market in Poland?

The awareness of prospective clients is gradually changing: more and more of them realise that their purchase decisions may not be made on the basis of price and one brand provider only, but they also need to realise that there is a good local alternative in terms of quality and range.

 

 

  1. How do you see the engine market in Poland in the next five years?

 

I think in the near future the trend to move the production of renowned Western companies to Poland is bound to continue, along with gradual equipping of vessel engine rooms. This is because we have highly qualified employees and experts, modern production facilities and most importantly lower production costs.  On the other hand, it is possible to see the first symptoms of an increase in the domestic market: this is noticeable in the number of boats in marines reflecting a rise in wealth of individual clients. Among positive factors are significant funds allocated to create marines and inland water routes. Budgets of corporate clients are also more ample, and there are also changes in tender procedures not to promote the lowest price factor only.  The above factors have a positive influence on future sales prospects for engines and drive systems. The Polish market is starting, however, from a very low level and we have a lot to make up in comparison with mature markets, such as not so faraway ones like in Sweden or Norway.
