We Launch into Germany with Brockhausen Marinevertrieb

We’ve had our busiest January ever coming off the back of a surprisingly successful METS despite the lock downs in The Netherlands at the time. We’ll be announcing several new launches in the coming weeks but first of which is our availability in Germany. 

We’d been in touch with the team at Brockhausen Marinevertrieb for a while investigating the market and discussing a launch and during METS we concluded that the time was right. 

Brockhausen Marinevertrieb will become our official German distributors and also look after the DACH markets including Austria and Switzerland.

Brockhausen Marinevertrieb was founded by Klaus Brockhausen more than 40 years ago, turning his hobby – sailing – into a career. His son Pit Nicolas and grandson Johann Heinrich later joined the business. The business still operates with three generations today.

Brockhausen Marinevertrieb stick to the motto "strong brands", only choosing high-quality products from well-known manufacturers so we’re thrilled they’ve decided to take on Ecoworks Marine.

The German economy is the biggest in the EU with a thriving boating sector and some of the most well known shipyards and marine brands. Marinevertrieb Brockhausen will be importing Ecoworks range of better for the environment cleaning products for chandleries, marinas and shipyards as well as visiting superyachts to the well known German yards. They have already taken delivery of their first order ready for the 2022 season and our first joint customer - Gründl Bootsimport in Bönningstedt, has already stocked up on Ecoworks.

Our co-founder, Angus said of the new agreement “we’d been talking with Brockhausen for a while about working together and liked how they took their time to investigate the market properly. At METS in 2021 several things came together to make us both feel now was the right time to invest in bringing Ecoworks to the German market and we agreed a distribution deal. As markets start to open up again, we’re excited to grow into the German market.”

Pit Brockhausen, Managing Director of Brockhausen Marinevertrieb adds, “The whole team of Brockhausen Marinevertrieb is happy and excited to finally start the exclusive cooperation with Ecoworks Marine. We are proud that Ecoworks is putting trust in us to take care of the DACH marine market. The potential for ecological and sustainable cleaning products is huge and necessary and we are glad to have the possibility to work for a global brand like Ecoworks. Our family business is looking forward to a great and long term partnership with the Johnston family and Ecoworks Marine.“
