“We are very excited to strengthen and enhance our presence with the addition of Lodder’s Marine into the Marine Sales Group of dealerships,” said Mike Tutor, CEO of Marine Sales Group. “Lodder’s shares our strong commitment to growth and customer satisfaction. This acquisition represents another step in our strategic plan to continue our expansion into new markets.”
