Reinvesting in its business in the Americas, Glomex s.r.l. has partnered with distributor GA Communications. The Baltimore-based company is now the exclusive provider of Glomex’s full range of marine and RV products in North and South America. The new entity will operate as Glomex Americas.

“This strategic recapitalization enables Glomex to maintain its proven track record of introducing innovative technologies and products, while focusing on growth and brand enhancement within the region,” said Glomex owner Piero Baldassarri. For over thirty years, Ravenna, Italy-based Glomex s.r.l. has manufactured an extensive line of premium quality, yet value-driven, antennas, amplifiers and wireless monitoring systems for boats and RVs.

GA Communications is led by founder Ernie Ellis, directing a team of marine professionals that support the growing Glomex customer base in the Americas by leveraging their industry relationships and expertise. Ellis is principal of Sea-Fire and founder of Globaltec Solutions, with over 30 years of marine experience. A 25-year industry veteran, Richard Duckworth assists in GA Communications’ strategic planning and technical oversight; Justin Roem leads the sales team with seven years in the industry. Glomex customers will transition seamlessly to GA Communications, with sales order management and accounting services already in place. Glomex products have won numerous industry accolades including three Boating Industry Top Product Awards. It supplies OEMs such as Azimut, Benetti, Bavaria, Beneteau, Dufour, Ferretti, Hanse, Jeanneau, Sea Ray and Sunseeker. Glomex offers traditional stick aerials, as well as TV, Internet and cellular antennas for boats and RVs; its WebBoat coastal Internet system offers the widest range in the industry. Its pioneering ZigBoat™ product line is a monitoring system that delivers SMS notifications without fees, cloud service subscriptions, registrations or privacy policy agreements.
