Inventory and distribution will be coordinated from Mackay’s Miami office. Outside the U.S., Mackay has distribution rights through its 15 international locations and network of 90 marine service agents, with the exception of Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Dukane’s maritime VDR Beacon product line consists of the DKM120, DK120, DKM502, DKM-502/90, and the DK485. Mackay will also source Dukane’s newest compact ATS-270 beacon-tester.
