POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Dometic Group, a provider of leisure products for the caravan, motor home, automotive, truck and marine markets, has recently undergone a global company reorganization designed to strengthen its position as a supplier of OEM and aftermarket products and services, it reported in a statement this morning. The reorganization is set to finalize by March.

The Dometic Group will divide into distinct divisions, each specific to one market and headed up by its own team of professionals.

In addition, Dometic has appointed 12 regional managers responsible for all business activities within 12 regional territories – Africa, America, Asia/Australia, Benelux, Eastern Europe, France, Germany, Italy, Middle East, Nordic, Spain and United Kingdom.

Among the new global divisions is Dometic Marine, headed by Frank Marciano, formerly president of Dometic Environmental Corp. and a 20-year veteran of the marine business. The new division will allow Dometic’s global marine trading activities to take place under one focused team, according to the company. Marciano and his team have the task of coordinating all global marine business activities, while looking for synergies within the Dometic Group to better serve Dometic’s customer base. Members of Marciano’s management team include Ed McKiernan, Ned Trigg, Robert Sagulin, Charlie Barefoot, James Kerrigan, Ken Taranto, Doug Curtis and Roberto Bonomi, the company reported.

“As a company, Dometic has an excellent portfolio of prestige brands, dedicated customer service and highly professional technical support,” said Marciano. “With the creation of the Dometic Marine division we will be looking to bring more of these products and services to customers all over the world.”

Marciano also said he looks forward to developing programs and activities to better support the company’s OEM and aftermarket businesses in all regions.

From its headquarters in Pompano Beach, Fla., Dometic Marine will oversee sales, marketing and new product planning of the entire range of marine products, which include marine air-conditioning systems, sanitation systems, refrigerators, stoves and other Dometic products. Its brands include Condaria, Cruisair, Grunert, Marine Air, SeaLand, Sentry, SMEV and WAECO as well as the Dometic brand.

Dometic said it has also formed a new global technology division, Leisure Tech, to focus internally on innovation, quality and productivity.
