Konrad Marine Partners with Cummins Marine to Bring Propulsion Package to Commercial, Military, and Recreational Markets
HUDSON, Wis., Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Konrad Marine is pleased to announce that they have formalized a relationship with Cummins Marine, jointly creating a propulsion “package” which is now available for the marine marketplace worldwide.
The power, speed, and efficiency of the offering make it an ideal fit for military applications such as intercept and patrol, search and rescue, and special ops such as anti-piracy missions. The package’s extreme efficiency will significantly benefit commercial applications such as towing, survey, water taxi, crew boats, commercial fishing, and oil response. Recreational vessels will benefit from the commercial durability of the offering.
The package utilizes the new Cummins QSB 6.7L diesel engines with Konrad Series 600 stern drives. It will be sold primarily through Cummins distribution channels with active participation and support from Konrad Marine. The companies will jointly qualify, configure, sell, install, and support the Cummins sales channel and their customers, with sales and service plans tailored for each distributor’s region.
Konrad sterndrives and Cummins B series engines have enjoyed connectivity for well over a decade, and have thousands of successful installations. The companies believe formalizing their relationship brings even greater benefits for their customers. With the components in predefined, tested and approved packages, installations will be significantly simplified. The consistency that packaging and the relationship provides in sales, installation, and service will ensure very successful applications.
“We see this relationship as an opportunity to accelerate the future growth of Konrad Marine and Cummins. We are excited to tell the world together that we are going to offer a product that will be second to none. I see our two companies working well into the future offering great products and packages for all our builders and customers!” says Thomas Wood, General Manager of Konrad Marine.
A seminar introducing the offering is open to the press and will be held today at the International Workboat Show in New Orleans, Louisiana, in the Cummins Marine booth #3002 at 2:30 p.m.
