Dometic acquires marine A/C business

Mar 6, 2014 by Guest Writer

Pompano Beach-based Dometic Group, a global provider of leisure products for the marine, motorhome and automotive markets, has signed an agreement with Airxcel to buy certain assets related to Marvair’s pleasure boat business.



The agreement gives Dometic a “significant” parts inventory to provide product support and warranty service for all Marvair Marine pleasure craft products, according to a news release. In addition, Dometic has procured an inventory of Marvair products that will be offered for sale, while supplies last.



Marvair has decided to exit the manufacturing and sale of air conditioners for pleasure boats to focus on the growing telecommunications segment of its business.



Moving forward, Dometic will support all of Marvair Marine’s OEM customers.
