Harris to Manage Go2marine’s Commercial Supply Division

Kal brings to Mariner Supply and Go2marine over 20 years of sales experience in applying marine equipment, along with associated hydraulic powering systems, to the commercial fishing industry, NOAA, Coast Guard, and the US Navy. The new job at Mariner Supply will allow Kal to continue to work closely with commercial customers to solve complex problems in net-hauling, pot-hauling, lifting and anchor handling, along with mooring operations. “For many years MARCO gave me the opportunity to help solve gear handling problems aboard many types of vessels. Marco’s commitment to manufacture and supply only products of the highest quality was paramount...” remarked Harris, adding, “the Go2marine team has the same enthusiastic commitment to its customers. Additionally, by using Go2marine’s far-reaching on-line technology, I know we bring to the marine industry problem solving capabilities never before available. This allows the Mariner Supply Commercial Division to excel in supplying quality equipment, parts and systems to all marine customers, be it in the commercial fishing sector, oil supply and government vessels, business-to-business, end-user, distribution or other merchandising developments”.
