Navico adds Clarion audio for local market
New distribution arrangement follows US tie-up between Clarion and JL Audio.
Following on from the move in October last year in the US which saw JL Audio take on responsibility for audio systems from Clarion Marine, local electronics distributor, Navico, has announced that it will be supplying a range of Clarion Marine audio products to its existing dealer network from 1 January, 2019.
When the announcement was made last year that JL Audio was taking on the marine component of Clarion’s audio business, it was expected that other international markets, including Australia and New Zealand, would follow suit. Locally, Navico has been a distributor for JL Audio products since 2016.
“The well-established and quality proven Clarion Marine products complement Navico’s extensive product portfolio,” said Mathew Hooper, Navico Australia and New Zealand sales director. “We can now offer a complete and premium range of marine electronics to our customer base and look forward to developing our partnership with JL Audio with the distribution of Clarion Marine Systems.”
Navico will distribute a range of radios, remotes, speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers in the Clarion Marine range.
