Seastar Solutions

 

SeaStar Solutions, the global leader in steering and control systems, is proud to announce its 25th anniversary working with Allpa Marine Equipment of the Netherlands. Founded in 1971, Allpa is a leading European marine equipment wholesaler and has been a key distributor for SeaStar Solutions since 1993.

“We are proud of our long-standing partnership with Allpa over the past 25 years,” said Tom Douglass, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at SeaStar Solutions. SeaStar first started doing business with Allpa after the meeting of Robbie Brown (then Vice-President of International Sales for SeaStar) and Pim Rutgers (the founder of Allpa). “We have had strong growth and territory strength since that meeting, and it has continued with Mark Rutgers (the current owner of Allpa since 2000),” added Douglass.

The Allpa Team has worked tirelessly in establishing a strong and successful dealer network throughout the BeNeLux and Germany. Allpa successfully supports the Boatbuilder segment and marine aftermarket in Netherlands and Germany. “They are a true partner and we would like to offer them our thanks and appreciation for their support over the years. We’re looking forward to continued success in the future,” said Douglass.

Allpa Marine Equipment has built a very strong program over the years and this has resulted in a very strong position for Allpa and her suppliers and synergies for all involved.

To celebrate this milestone, the SeaStar Solutions sales team will make a presentation to Mark Rutgers, Managing Director of Allpa at the Düsseldorf Boat show, January 2018.
