Cimco Expands Distribution Territory Into South America


Cimco Marine, the manufacturer behind the diesel outboard OXE, announced the expansion of OXE’s commercial availability into South America. Cimco established a distributor agreement with Motores del Pacifico S.A., who will have distribution rights for the OXE throughout Ecuador. With this agreement Cimco will have their first distributor in South America.

“Cimco is proud to declare that Motores del Pacifico is our official beach head into the South American market – it is a reliable and professional organization, with an experienced and well trained technical team,” said Jim Denley, Sales Manager at Cimco Marine. “We are particularly looking forward to seeing OXE units in service around the Galapagos Islands, where its greatly reduced emission levels shall enhance the existing preservation measures for this unique and protected habitat.”

Motores del Pacifico has more than 23 years of experience of the Ecuadorian market and proven experience from working with marine diesel outboard engines. They have been distributor of Yanmar diesel engines for 23 years, and they have also represented other Japanese products and Japanese trader houses.

“Motores del Pacifico has been following the development of this revolutionary technology from Cimco. We have studied the technical characteristics and quality of the OXE 200HP, and concluded that it is the right product and concept for our market,” said Javier Chalen, Marine Division Manager at Motores del Pacifico S.A. “The ambition for Motores del Pacifico is to, step by step, become the leading supplier of this high technology marine product, and gradually grow the outboard market based on the concept, benefits and quality of the OXE outboard engine, and at the same time meet customer requirements.”

Motores del Pacifico understands the cornerstones of the OXE concept – reliability, strength, endurance and performance – and these are the exact characteristics they look for to supply the Ecuadorian outboard market with. With the OXE Diesel outboard, Motores del Pacifico will match the requirements on their market and meet customer expectations, and Cimco further extend the availability of OXE around the globe.
