CMC Marine 20th


CMC had better than expected attendance at its office to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary representing Raymarine in Canada.   The many dealers who took the opportunity to visit the CMC office to meet the CMC staff that work with them every day also had an opportunity to see all the latest products that will be available for 2015.  

Raymarine and CMC

“We at Raymarine are very proud of our 20 year relationship with CMC,” said Larry Rencken, VP of Sales. “In many ways, CMC is Raymarine in Canada providing sales, marketing and service support for the entire country.  The senior leadership team has a very good understanding of the market and they have the best sales organization coast to coast. Our go to market strategy in Canada is very much a partnership process with CMC and we look forward to many more years of growth together.”
