CJR has announced a long-term partnership with France’s Marine Transmissions, which will become the exclusive distributor and maintenance provider for CJR products and services in the South of France and Corsica. The new agreement further expands CJR’s global reach and offers CJR customers even more options for local support in one of the most important regions for summer cruising.
Founded in 1994, Marine Transmissions has over 20 years of experience in the industry and in 2014 opened its own dedicated propulsion department in response to growing demand for its repair and maintenance services. Today, the company has extensive facilities within its Mandelieu-la-Napoule HQ, located near Cannes in the heart of the French Riviera.
Sophie Garello, managing director of Marine Transmission commented: “We are very proud of the reputation we have built and this is demonstrated in the 830 yachts we currently maintain from our modern facilities. Our location and comprehensive proficiencies mean we are uniquely positioned to support CJR customers, regardless of whether it is regular maintenance, refit or repair. CJR’s forward facing philosophy and investment in the latest technology matches our own focus on leveraging new developments to improve the on-board experience and vessel performance for our customers. Because of these cultural alignments, we are confident that our relationship with CJR will be a long and mutually beneficial one.”
Alex Stevens, technical sales manager for CJR, added: “We are delighted to partner with Marine Transmissions and offer its extensive capabilities to CJR customers in the heart of this Mediterranean hotspot. Not only does this relationship have the potential to reduce the time out of the water in the event of an incident, but it also gives our customers total confidence that the work will be completed to the same exacting standards as our facilities here in the UK. Safe in the knowledge that from repitching and propeller repair to vibration analysis and laser alignment, every decision Marine Transmissions makes has the analysis required to substantiate their assessment. That is what both CJR and our customers demand and expect, and why Marine Transmissions is the perfect fit.”
