ComMar Sales, a Rhode Island-based representative of marine product manufacturers, celebrates 50 years of serving the marine industry in September.

Founded in Massachusetts by Bill Glaser in 1969, ComMar got its start representing technical marine electronics manufacturers from Maine to Virginia. When current partners Tim Conroy, Mark Mitchell and Norm MacLeod came on board in the 1980s, ComMar added marine hardware and safety lines, expanded its representation to the southeast U.S. states in the 1990s, to the Caribbean islands in 2005, and to the Gulf Coast states in 2008.
