We have Marco techs traveling frequently in the field, keeping machinery running or gathering data, and they meet and greet a lot of folks and take a lot of pictures. Now we have a place to share this with you.

For example, David is back from Europe and has posted some interesting photos on our Facebook page. We have a new MARINIZED POWER GRIP CONTROL PANEL that we are proud of.

Custom Hydraulic Pump Drives

Marco designs and builds Custom Hydraulic Pump Drives to fit your unique applications.

Sometimes your engine has outboard equipment hanging in space that a standard pump drive will conflict with. We can design your drive to fit any situation you may have. This example shows a custom extended drive.

Pacific Marine Expo Recap

We all at MARCO were so happy to see all of you at Expo this year. It's a great place to see old friends and make new ones, and we appreciate that you stopped by our booth.

For those of you who could not make the show this year, we want to share with you our new products and let you know what we have been working on.

Our main focus was the three new Purse King Deck Winches. We now have 4 sizes of DUAL SHEAVE Purse line haulers, so there is something for just about any size vessel or fishery.

The other exciting thing this year was a presentation given by David O'Neill of Marco, demonstrating what we have learned through the last few years of data gathering and analysis. Three videos are available on our YouTube Channel, so if you missed it you can still see the presentation.
