Rotterdam, The Netherlands, September 1, 2015 – Global leader in safety and survival technologies, ACR Electronics, Inc., a Drew Marine Company, announces the opening of their new European distribution centre in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. ACR is now able to expeditiously serve European customers through their new distribution centre with the latest safety and survival products for the marine, outdoor and aviation markets.
The Rotterdam distribution centre will support ACR’s expanding business within the European Union. It will serve as the launching pad for growing their worldwide network of dealers, distributors and original equipment manufacturers. ACR’s European distribution centre will enable key customers to obtain ACR products in as little as one business day.
ACR’s international headquarters and manufacturing facility remains in the United States of America in Fort Lauderdale, FL. This is where over 200 employees come together under the ethos “We design products knowing they are used to save lives.”
“ACR opening a European distribution hub is just another example of ACR responding to our customers’ needs and demonstrates we realize what may work in one geographic region may not always work in another. Our goal for all of our customers is on-time, in-full, error-free shipments”, explained Gerry Angeli, President and General Manager.
ACR stands ready to serve commercial and recreational boater’s safety needs with their suite of marine electronics and survival gear, such as their durable Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs) and Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs). Designed to work in concert with their 406 MHz beacons are Search and Rescue Transponders (SARTs), VHF radios, searchlights and rescue strobe lights. All of these products are commonly found on the biggest commercial fishing boats and ships on the waters today.
